HELP OUT: Girlguiding groups in Chalfont St Peter urgently looking for volunteers

 Published on: 5th April 2022   |   By: Lizzie Ellis   |   Category: Uncategorized

Girlguiding groups in Chalfont St Peter could be at risk of closure if they do not find volunteers to help run the Rainbow, Brownie and Guide units in the village.

Volunteer Claire Allum said: “I currently run the 4th Chalfont St Peter Brownies with another volunteer, but ideally, we would like additional volunteers to run effectively.

“Girls in Brownies have incredible experiences together, make brilliant friends and discover the world around them. Every time they meet up, groups of Brownies learn new skills and take on challenges as they work out what they want to be and do in the world.

“In order to volunteer, you don’t need any previous experience, just your willingness to support the girls! It is rewarding to volunteer on a regular basis and help children develop in an extracurricular activity in your local community.”

The 1st Chalfont St Peter Brownies and Guide units have both had to close due to a lack of volunteers and Claire fears that more Girlguiding groups could face the same fate without additional volunteers.

Adult volunteers are needed but Girlguiding can also offer under 18s the opportunity to join as a young leader or as part of their Duke of Edinburgh award volunteering.

The Brownies meet from 5.30 to 7pm each Monday at the Guide Hut in Landsdown Road, Chalfont St Peter.
