On the 22nd October 1925, 5th Beverley (Wesley) Guides were first registered with the Headquarters for the Girl Guide Association.
Ninety years later and the Unit is still going strong, enjoying an active programme based around the ‘Five Essentials’ of the now re-named Girlguiding UK, which enables girls and young women to develop and grow.
Diane Hutchinson, the Unit’s Leader commented:
“Throughout the years, Guiding has continued to reinvent itself to mirror the world around it, which is a large part of why it is still so popular.”
“We are a girl-led Unit that has regular opportunities for all members to have their voice heard; it’s the members who help to plan a busy and active programme.”
“In recent months, for example, we have attended an International Camp, sharing with Scouts and Guides from all over the country.”
To celebrate the 90th Anniversary, the Guides enjoyed a party at Hollywood Bowl in Hull where they enjoyed the bowling, sharing food and singing Happy Birthday very loudly.
They then enrolled their five newest Guides who joined in September.
Hopefully the Guides will be adding to these memories ready for 2025 and their Centenary Celebrations.
Girlguiding offers girls and young women between the ages of 5 and 25 various opportunities to raise their confidence and aspirations and make a positive difference to their lives and communities.
Currently there are over 450,000 young members. That’s enough to fill Wembly Stadium 5 times.
Additionally there are many opportunities for adults to get involved as volunteers.
