Trefoil Guild: ‘Guiding for adults’

In 2018 we celebrated 75 years of the Trefoil Guild. The organisation was founded in 1943 to offer members personal and social opportunities while supporting Guiding and Scouting, i.e. ‘Guiding for Adults’.


Membership is open to anyone aged 18 years plus who has been a member of Girlguiding or the Scout Association or who makes the Guide or Scout promise. This means both men and women are welcomed in the organisation. While all Guilds have a common purpose, each Guild delivers a flexible programme to suit the needs and interests of its members.

There are Guilds in Axbridge, Bridgewater, Burnham-on-Sea, Crewkerne, Frome, Minehead, North Petherton, Shepton Mallet, Taunton, Wells and Yeovil
