Girlguiding South West England


The Region's event to mark the 2021 World Thinking Day was our biggest ever and made it possible for our members to see the world in the middle of the pandemic.  The five WAGGGS World Centres helped to make WTD@HOME the success it was, and to show our appreciation the Region donated £1,000 to each.

We will soon be announcing details of our event to mark World Thinking Day in 2022 so keep watching for news!

Vikki Warner

Vikki Warner has moved across from Membership Support at the Region Office to a newly created position of Events Assistant.  Vikki is now working on the delivery of Region trainings, activities, conferences and events and providing support to the Region's Trip Leaders on the planning, administration and organisation of international trips.

The next few months will be busy for Vikki as we hopefully begin to return to some kind of normality and events and trips start happening again, and we wish her well in her new role.

Region Compass Logo

We were thrilled that the Region’s first post-pandemic, face-to-face event was able to go ahead on Saturday 11th September with the Region’s Annual Compass Award Presentation at the White Hart Hotel in Salisbury. 

Girlguiding Inspire SWE badge

Girlguiding Inspire is the name for the 18-30 Guiding community which promises to be flexible, challenging, inspiring, empowering, fun and inclusive:

'We will be the place to come for all 18-30 year old women in the UK.  We provide opportunities to help us develop into empowered, independent women.  We will support each other to build a supportive and fun community.  We will help ourselves to find our place within Girlguiding and the wider world.  We will lead this together.'

You can find out more on the Girlguiding Website - click here.

We have created a badge to celebrate Girlguiding Inspire SWE.  There are no plans for Girlguiding to produce a badge and ours is available for anyone to buy at just £1.00 plus postage and packing.

Our new necker which has been designed exclusively for Girlguiding Inspire SWE members is priced at £13.50 - but please note that membership details will be checked before despatch so please do not place an order unless you are a Girlguiding Inspire SWE member. 

Click here to go to the Region's online shop - we have limited stock available for the neckers so place your order today!

GGSWE Logo - Where Guiding Goes On

The Girlguiding South West England Region is made up of 16 diverse Counties and Islands, each with Divisions and/or Districts and individual Units which are often quite unique from their neighbours.  All enjoy a variety of advantages and face different challenges, but the Region’s Leaders and Commissioners work hard to ensure that Guiding continues to be fun and accessible to as many girls as possible, of all ages, regardless of where they live.
