Guiding News – August 2020

During the lockdown period, Guiding has continued for many local girls. Some took part in the Wendover District “Stay In, Sleep In” badge, which involved sleeping somewhere other than their own beds (preferably outdoors) for at least one night and undertaking other tasks – making family breakfast, for example – in order to complete it. Well done to all who took part.

Wendover District Guiding would like to salute two longtime volunteers, Megan Cawley and Joy Heels, who have decided to retire this year. Megan has been leader of 1st Wendover Brownies since 1994, starting with the unit as a parent helper when her daughter Sarah was a Brownie. She also served as District Commissioner for several years. Joy has held many roles in her 34 years with Guiding, including Leader, District Commissioner and Division Commissioner. Most people currently involved in Guiding will know Joy from the Guide Shop in Wendover Guide Hut. We wish them both a long, healthy and happy retirement!

If you’d like to be involved in Guiding, there are always roles that need filling, both in units and in Friends of Guiding. Please visit for more information about Guiding in this area.
