Welcome to London over the Border Guides

As we come into Autumn, our units with their amazing leaders are already planning 2018 events as well as remembering what fun we have had this summer with all of our 2017 adventures, trips, residentials, camps and international events, not forgetting all those outings and residentials happening before the end of 2017.


Volunteering with Girlguiding is such fun and presents opportunities to try out new activities such as Zorbing, High Ropes, sitting round a campfire and being part of a world wide organisation.  Find out more on

Colours of the Rainbow 2017 was  held on 23rd September. Girlguiding Chigwell Row Brownie and Rainbow Day was enjoyed by around 1500 Rainbows, Brownies, their leaders and unit helpers who attended this year's event.  Everything was amazing including the weather which kept fine for us. The variety of activities on offer were breathtaking and we would like to send a huge thanks to Yvonne Chigwell Row Warden and the Campsite crew for all their hard work as well as Pam one of our Asst County Commissioners, who all helped to make the day a success.  Look out for photos in the October County newsletter LOB News.
