Chief Commissioner Blog -June

 

The beginning of June sees us not only celebrating Volunteers Week, but the amazing events planned for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The Queen has a long association with Girlguiding and indeed is our patron. As part of the beacons celebration, seven beacons are to be lit across Anglia, with our region beacon taking place at Hautbois Activity Center. Over 300 people are set to attend a fabulous event culminating with our bonfire beacon and fireworks. Certainly, an event to remember, many of you will have or are planning to celebrate in your units, district, divisions, or counties. Please do send us your, photos we would love to see what you have been doing.

You will have seen we have advertised a number of volunteer vacancies. I’m pleased to share we have recruited to the Girlguiding Council. Elizabeth Fry continues for second term and we welcome Rosie Lovell from Hertfordshire and Charlotte Bennett from Buckinghamshire.

As volunteers, you are all truly amazing. Giving your time, sharing your skills and empowering our girls and young women, but have ever you thought about a new opportunity or adventure? We have a number of roles to join our region team to help us offer exciting, fun, opportunities and activities. There is always lots of support and as with all roles, its teamwork that makes a real difference.  Many of the roles can be  shared. Please do give some time to consider the role we have – your region values you and needs your help. #TogtherWeInspire

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO, THE TIME YOU GIVE AND THE SKILLS YOU SHARE, YOU ARE ALL AMAZING AND VALUED MEMBERS OF GIRLGUIDING ANGLIA.

Take care, keep smiling,

Tracy
