Julie Richards

Adviser Trustee

Region Business Adviser and Trustee

My role is helping the region with its strategic development plan; addressing such questions as what do we want for our members and what do our members want from us?   I play a key part in assessing how we going to achieve these objectives, taking into consideration the national development plan and the means of measuring progress.

The enjoyable aspect of this role is the opportunity to be involved in looking to the future and helping to take the region forwards, so that Girlguiding Anglia continues to deliver quality guiding and be exciting, inspiring, challenging and fun.

Why do I do it?  That is easy, the lifelong friends I have made, the opportunities I have shared in outdoor pursuits and international trips and the skills I have learned.

I have been in Guiding for far too long to remember, being involved with so many wonderful young people does help to keep me young!! It also gives me great hope for the future.  Long may it last!
