Our county may be one of the smallest geographically but we make up for it in energy, activities and a fun-filled programme of events.

60+ units

Across the region for girls and young women and two Trefoil Guilds of adult volunteers


Rainbows is an exciting programme for girls now aged 4-7 to learn and grow through having fun, going on trips and adventures – both in their regular meetings and at special events. Girls get their hands dirty, do arts and crafts, try different sports, get in touch with nature and play games with friends.

They can work towards interest badges, start their skills builder journey by trying new things like camping, developing leadership skills and learning first aid.


Brownie units bring girls aged 7-10 together to help them discover new hobbies, get creative, explore other cultures and have outdoor adventures. Girls meet regularly to work on badges, learn new skills, play games and see their friends – and there are also opportunities to go along to special events, like sleepovers and camps. They can also work towards interest badges in their own time, choosing topics and skills they’re interested in, exploring everything from languages to space.


Guides have an exciting and varied programme designed to inspire, challenge and encourage girls aged 10-14 to make a difference in their community.

Guides is an excellent opportunity to get out there and do something really different. Girls create their own campaigns, learn and share new skills and fly down the occasional zip wire. They explore new places like camps, trips and enjoy exciting events like Tartan Gig.


Rangers is all about taking the lead and finding new challenges. Our programme of interest badges, skills builders and awards supports young women aged 14-18 to try new things, travel the world and develop skills across our six themes.

Being a Ranger is also all about taking action and giving back to the community. You’ll meet up regularly, do fun activities and get recognised for your achievements with badges and awards.
