County Training Weekend, 8-10 March 2019 at Foxlease

The team have been working hard on the plans for our County Training Weekend at Foxlease, and we wanted to share with you some more information about the event, as there are still spaces available. If you would like to join us, please contact Jenny and let her know so we can pop you on the list

What’s on our agenda?

Friday evening will be an opportunity for us to explore learning things in different ways – some fun activities to show us that learning doesn’t have to be in a classroom setting!

On Saturday we will be joined by two trainers from South West Region, and we have three very different sessions planned. There will be a practical session looking at the new programme and how it’s working in our units (note: this will be very different from the County Training we delivered in September). We will then have a session titled “What’s new?” which looks at some of the other new things in Girlguiding that we need to be aware of. And the final session on Saturday will be an energetic session entitled “Staying with us!” which will take a fresh look at how we support our girls to transition to the next stage of their Guiding journey.

Saturday night will be an opportunity for us to get together and compete in some team challenges; or relax and socialise with Guiding friends from across the County.

Sunday’s sessions will then provide us with the opportunity to try out some new activities, and complete some challenges, whilst exploring Foxlease and discovering what else is on offer at this fantastic facility. Led by Ruth and Louise, this is going to be a practically based morning, full of fun and laughter.

Make new friends and gain ideas

So, if this is your first County weekend, or your 21st, we are confident that we will be able to offer you some new ideas and knowledge to take away for your units; as well as the chance to relax and get to know some of the other amazing Girlguiding volunteers in Somerset.

If you are unable to join us for the whole weekend, but would like to come down just for the day on the Saturday; or join us on the Saturday and Sunday (but not the Friday night) please contact Jenny Hill at as we are sure will be able to accommodate you
