Girlguiding North Yorkshire West covers the Harrogate, Knaresborough, Ripon, Skipton and Settle areas and ensures that the Guiding opportunities provided are as varied as the interests of our members.
From residentials and camps to outdoor activities such as kayaking, climbing and bush-craft to international opportunities ranging from visits, holidays, community projects and exchanges to the chance to chill out with friends, make things, visit new places and most importantly have fun.
2010 saw us celebrating our 100th birthday and that certainly proved that Guiding is alive and kicking in Girlguiding North Yorkshire West, with over 200 Rainbows visiting a farm, almost 800 Brownies taking over the Alhambra theatre for a special showing of the panto, over 150 Guides getting away to York for an action packed day of challenges, Senior Section also visiting York and meeting new friends, over 2000 people gathering at Newby Hall, near Ripon for a special evening celebration and 200 Leaders at a thank you event in January.
Throughout the year, events and activities are made available to our members, and will be published on the website.
