Trefoil Guild

The Trefoil Guild adds another dimension to guiding and is open to all aged 18+.

Offering practical help to Girlguiding UK in many ways, Trefoil Guild members support guiding worldwide and live the spirit of guiding.

Within North Yorkshire West we have a number of Guilds which meet at times convenient to their members who enjoy a wide range of activities and regular meetings where the focus is on a varied programme including crafts, speakers, visits, friendship, and having fun. Guilds can be found across the County and are accessible to all our Divisions.

Membership of the Trefoil Guild provides opportunities to meet with friends, develop interests, tackle new challenges, enjoy outings and holidays together and help with District, Division, County, Region, National and International activities.

The aims of the Trefoil Guild are:

  • To keep alive among members the spirit of the Guide/Scout Promise & Law
  • To carry that spirit into the communities in which members live & work
  • To give practical, financial & moral support to Guiding & Scouting

Full membership is open to anyone aged 18 or over who has been a member of The Guide Association or The Scout Association or has made the Guide Promise. Trefoil Guild members are willing to help at times at unit meetings and can offer a wide range of talents.
