Our current leader of the Guides, Ms Lesley Cochrane, has advised that she has to step down as leader in charge. Is there anyone who can help fill this position please?? Training is given and leaders have just as much Fun and Friendship as the girls do, plus wonderful opportunities to join fellow leaders in ‘adult’ events.
Prestwick South Church are also looking for some help with their guides too, so once again, if anyone springs to mind please, please let Mrs Elaine Pirie in the church office know and she will pass on any information. Thank you.
