Girl Guides

17th Dunstable (St Mary’s) Guide Company is now running in its 30th year. What we offer to girls between the ages often and fourteen is something that is now considered unique; a single gender youth group who do not find themselves competing with boys, rather enhancing and encouraging one another’s skills and talents.

We spend our time craft making, playing games, cooking and whatever else the girls indicate interests them. Emphasis is put on the girls leading each other and so once a term we ask them to plan their own evening, doing whatever suits them!In the past few years we have raised money with the girls to pay for a trip of their choice, with the Brownies, which have included Brighton, Cadbury’s World in Birmingham and Whipsnade Zoo.As we are based at St Mary’s, we attend mass in uniform several times a year and actively try to support the church.However we do not exclusively accept Catholic Guides, and have an equal number of girls that do not attend church.Any girl aged between 10 and 14 is welcome to come and try Guides. Whether they are very shy or hugely outgoing, there is a friend at Guide for them to be made!For more information, or if your daughter would be interested in coming to a meeting and seeing what we do.
