Read this as the girls do each step:

  • The head represents the creative imagination of Lord Baden Powell who gave us this wonderful game of Guiding.
  • The body bead represents the heart of Guiding - The Promise and Law.
  • Our youngest members, Sparks, are five and six years old. They learn to "Share and Be A Friend".
  • Brownies work and play together lending a hand to help others.
  • At nine years of age girls are ready to move from the closed circle of Brownies to the open horseshoe of Guides.
  • At twelve girls cross the bridge to Pathfinders where they re-affirm their promise with deeper understanding and broaden their horizons by following the five pathways of challenge.
  • At fifteen girls can choose from three highways that lead them out into a wider world - Rangers, Cadets, Junior Leaders.
  • Adult members keep in touch through the Trefoil Guild.
