What does the role of Assistant Lead Volunteer Growth & Retention  mean to you/involve? What do you hope to achieve as part of this role ?

We would love to see an increase of girls heading into Leadership within girlguiding, and new areas of the region being reached, increasing the opportunities we can give girls to join Girlguiding.

 What other roles do you have in guiding?

  I am an assistant leader with 1st Ripley Guides, the same group I was a Guide at 20 years ago! 

What relevant previous experiences have you had which led you to this Region role?

I was lucky enough to participate in GOLD Mexico 2018, where one of our key aims was to increase growth and retention across the country. We visited 6 different cities working with all age groups from Girasoles right the way up to and including Leaders and commissioners.

What is your favourite thing you have done, or your greatest achievement, as a member of Girlguiding?

I would definitely say GOLD, or visiting 3 of the World Centres. I aim to visit them all one day! 

    What do you enjoy outside guiding?

    I love to travel and explore new places. I'm very adventurous and absolutely love trying new things!    

    What is your favourite biscuit and why? 

    I would have to say a chocolate digestive, a true tasty classic, and a solid dunking biscuit for a cuppa!   

    What 3 words would you use to describe yourself?
