The aim of guiding is to help girls and young women develop emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually, so that they can make a positive contribution to their community and the wider world. Brownies are girls aged 7 to 11 who become a member of a Six and follow a programme called the Brownie Adventure. (Rainbows are girls aged 5 to 7, and Guides are girls aged 11 to 14.)


To become a member log onto the national girlguiding website and register your daughter. The nearest unit will then make contact. Alternatively you can contact Melanie Weaver (see right). Termly subscriptions are payable as this is a charitable organisation run by volunteers.

Rainbows (5 to 7 year olds)
The Whissendine Rainbows Group meet at the Sports Club from 4.45 to 5.45 every Thursday during term time. Please contact Jo-Ann Millington (tel: 01664 474311  millingtonjoann@gmail.com) for more information.

Brownies (7 to 11 year olds)
1st Whissendine Brownies operates a fun programme of activities for girls aged 7 – 11 which provide learning from doing. The girls work in small groups, to learn self-development and decision making as well as understanding their community and identifying their role in it. The group meets every Thursday in term time from 6 to 7.30pm at the Sports Club.  If you are interested, please contact Melanie Weaver (for contact details, see right).

Girl Guides (10 to 14 year olds)
There is no village Girl Guides group, with most girls joining either the 1st Oakham Guides or 7th Oakham Guides. Contact Mel Weaver for details.
