Please click on the link here to get the latest updates on virtual guiding from the Guiding UK website – if it is something you are interested in doing during this time of isolation.
It is open to members aged 16 to 25 and must be completed within three years from the start date or before your 26th birthday, whichever is sooner.
The Queen’s Guide award isn’t just a great achievement to share with other members of guiding. Potential employers and further education institutions will also be impressed with your accomplishment, which shows you have challenged yourself and achieved your goals in a range of different areas.
As we can’t yet meet up, this year we are planning to try something different. On 25th June at 7.30pm we will hold a virtual zoom annual review where a few of the county team will host a meeting that everyone is very welcome to log into and watch.
This means we can do our necessary business updates but also then still celebrate just how much we achieved as a county last year.
What should I wear?
Guide wear or your own clothes
Will there be refreshments?
Usually we would supply refreshments at these events so please feel free to have your own while we are online!
How do I join the meeting?
You will receive an email link with a code and password on the morning of the training via your email address
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Contact the office on firstname.lastname@example.org

Whilst we may not be able to meet in our regular units at the moment, we’re bringing you a new challenge to complete at home! Open to all young members, leaders and Trefoil Guild. Celebrate! at Home is a range of fun activities to complete during the month of June.
In our challenge pack, you’ll find a range of activities to suit all ages, abilities and resources. You’ll find that we’ve carried the hall themes through from Celebrate: Adventure, Arts and Action, the Silent Disco and Fun of the Fair, and also added challenges from the Counties across the Midlands Region.
You can download the challenge pack by clicking on the link below as well as a badge order form, for when you’ve completed it. Please ensure you read the notes to leaders at the front of the pack. We’ve also included a plain text version if you want to save ink when printing.
All members and Trefoil Guild
Badges are £1 each, with all proceeds going to NHS Charities Together
Complete the challenge during the month of June.
Join us online for our ‘biggest ever’ region wide, digital promise renewal! Saturday 27 June 2020 5:30pm for approx. 30 minutes.

NOVELTY is an acronym for Northamptonshire Overnight VE Lockdown Thank You
The aim is to get as many of the County as possible to sleep out or to sleep somewhere different at the same time as we celebrate VE day and say thank you to all those who gave us the freedom we enjoy today.
The sleep-out can take place any night Friday 8th, Saturday 9th or Sunday 10th May. You can build a shelter in a room other than your bedroom or pitch a tent in your garden and sleep in it for one night.
Please email email@example.com with your numbers attending and photos of them completing if possible (for use on our news page). A Certificate will then be sent out for each attendee.
Notes for leaders
Fay Parker our Northamptonshire 18-30 Co-ordinator is hosting this event and can provide lots more information of what will be available for everyone within the age range
Refreshments and cake will be served.
There will be a £3 charge payable at the door on the day
