Suffolk is part of Anglia region. Katherine West is currently county commissioner.
"I have never left guiding, it has been constant through school, university and life. I love it, it is the foundation of my existence. I am fiercely proud of Suffolk, and I am grateful to give something back to the place that gave me so much. I got all my self-confidence from guiding, not from school or anything else, it has been guiding. So to be able to give something back to the organisation that gave me so much when I was small, is amazing. Guiding brings friendship and so much to individuals, it is so amazing."
Katherine West, county commissioner for Girlguiding Suffolk
Suffolk has one of the oldest recorded Guide units, 1st Southwold Guides, which opened on 21 June 1910 and is still a thriving unit today. In the same division, the 1st Beccles Brownies were formed in 1918, making them one of the earliest Brownie packs.
