'I brought a friend' badge

If your Unit is looking to recruit more girls, Bring a Friend will give the non-Guiding friends of your current members the opportunity to see what Guiding has to offer and they will hopefully have such a great time they will be joining you as new members!


Available from the Region's online shop are posters to help recruit adult volunteers across all sections.  Each one has a row of tear-off slips providing any potential new volunteers with contact details, plus a QR code which can be used to download all the necessary information quickly and easily.  Pop the posters up at your local shop, doctor's surgery, village hall, etc and wait for the calls to come flooding in!

The posters come in packs of five and are free of charge, although postage is payable. Click here to go to the Region's Online Shop.


The concept of Lone guiding has existed almost as long as Girlguiding – the first Lone Guide Company was established in 1912 by Agnes Baden-Powell. Lone members work towards the Girlguiding programme in their own time, using friends or family for group activities, and accessing resources and support from Leaders via email or through the post. 


Available from the Region's online shop, we have Girlguiding flyers which are designed to help recruit parent volunteers.

The flyers are free of charge (postage is payable) and are available in packs of 10 for Rainbows, Brownies, Guides or Rangers.
