Marlborough Brownies need adult volunteers if they are to carry on

Marlborough Brownies' current Brown Owl, Karen Dobie, retires in July after over 20 years Guiding in the town. Her retirement leaves them with a major problem.

Assistant leader Jessica Caudle will be taking on the unit as 'Guider in charge' in September, but she needs to maintain adult-to-child ratios. There needs to be a  minimum of two adults in the building or ideally one adult to eight Brownies. If they leave the building for an excursion they must have 1:6.

Without adult volunteers to support Jessica, the group may have to be suspended - or even close.

Jessica told Marlborough.News: "Having more leaders would mean we could do more fun activities, and get out into the community, and potentially take on more girls as - we currently have a waiting list of between one and two years."
 
"Guiding on your CV is great for teamwork, organisational skills and leadership.   Personally it gives me so much enjoyment seeing the girls grow, learn and inspire each other - and me!"  

"It's not all cakes and crafts, sometimes making fires, grubbing around in the woods and getting thoroughly filthy and other times it's learning about the world, other cultures, making sense of money, who we are and where we will go and of course there are many, many badges to collect, and camps to look forward too."

Volunteering as a helper means a commitment of just 90 minutes a week in Marlborough town centre on a Tuesday 4:45-6:15pm.

Jessica adds: "If you wanted to consider being a Guider we would love to hear from you.   18 years for me - and 20 years for Brown Owl - and I haven't regretted one minute!"

Parents can register interest in volunteering or can sign up a daughter to one of the waiting lists for Marlborough Rainbows (age 5-7) Brownies (age 7-10) or Guides (age 10-14) go to this website.
