2nd Shiremoor (Salvation Army) Girlguiding
Our friends at the Salvation Army on Lesbury Avenue have active Guides, Brownies and Rainbows Units who meet each week during term time. You can find out more by calling 0191 253 8509
Our local Girlguiding units meet on Friday evenings at the Shiremoor Salvation Army hall on Lesbury Avenue:
4.45pm - 5.45pm Rainbows
6.00pm - 7.30pm Brownies
7.30pm – 9.00pm Guides
Rainbows (age 5-7) is all about developing self-confidence, building friendships, learning new things and having fun. Girls get their hands dirty with arts and crafts, getting in touch with nature and playing games - it's all about learning by doing.
In Brownies (age 7-10), girls go along to camps, holidays, day trips and sleepovers. They get together with their friends at regular meetings where they learn new hobbies, play music, explore other cultures and have outdoor adventures.
Guides (age 10-14) choose from badges and awards which help in learning new skills and trying new challenges. They take part in activities at regular meetings, special events and trips away.
If you are interested in Rainbows, Brownies or Guides, or think you might like to volunteer as an adult helper, please telephone 2nd Shiremoor (Salvation Army) Girlguiding on 0191 253 8509.
NB: Guiding is very popular and there may be a waiting list!
