Welcome to London over the Border Guides

 There is a saying that "Time flies when you are having fun" and we in London Over The Border Girlguiding County are certainly having fun.  Now that we are all able to enjoy more daylight hours and spend time at our local Region Campsite at Chigwell Row, Lambourne End, Essex, we are able to enjoy outdoor activities at Chigwell Row and our local areas.  Do check out the activities you can try with LaSER Paw Print badges via the details below.

Growing Up Wild LaSER badges  -  There are 25 Paw Print badges with ideas for outdoor meetings and are found on the Girlguding LaSER website.  These badge syllabi provide activities covering the whole year and are a great fun with all our members such as Growing Up Wild in the Woods, Growing Up Wild With Insects and Mini Beasts and many others.  Do look out for them there are lot of great ideas and resources.

Never a County to rest on our laurels a huge number of Leaders from our LaSER Region joined with Leaders from Anglia Region at Turn Up The Volume event to learn about the latest developments in shouting out about all of our fantastic programmes in Girlguiding and how to reach as many girls, young women and adults as possible.
