Growing Up Wild


30th birthday in 2017


International Trip 2016

Welcome to London over the Border Guides

Summer has arrived and as this is written the weather is amazing.  Our units continue to offer a great variety of activities many of which will be outdoors to take advantage of the longer days.


Thanks to all of our volunteers

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.  Do come along and find out what we do at Rangers, Guides, Brownies and Rangers.  One thing is for certain if you are involved with Girlguiding you will always find a friend whatever part of the world you find yourself in.  To find out more about the opportunities for adults and girls then do look on  


International Trips from London Over The Border County in 2018

Members from our County will be joining others from London and South East England Region on trips to  Ecuador, Cambodia and Malawi as well as a County Trip to Croatia.  Units have also undertaken the relevant qualifications to take girls away and some units have already visited France and Euro Disney and others plan to go to take Rangers to Prague and Vienna.


 Residentials and Sleepovers in the UK

Numerous trips are in the planning stage to enjoy weekends at various local campsites as well as Wellies and Wristbands at Foxlease,  Blacklands, PGL and the many other amazing campsites all around the UK for anything from a weekend to four or five days. Sleepovers arranged for Rainbows,  canal boat weekends for Guides, days out at Icando in London all of which have been organised by our committed, volunteers in addition to the weekly meetings.

 Parliament Week 2018 Plans for the 2018 events are in full swing in many units.  Have you booked your event for November 2018.  Lots of opportunities for our girls and leaders to find out all that happens in Parliament and opportunities for girls to get their voices heard? Many Units were visited by their Member of Parliament and local Government Councillors and Mayors and debated with enthusiasm, things that matter to them. Do sign up for your activities pack and badge and you can look forward to a great event.
