2015 - 2016

Here are just a few photos of what we have been doing since September, will update with more soon.

World Thinking Day 2016


The Cygnets, Brigins, Guides and Rangers all celebrated World Thinking Day at their meetings on Wednesday 24th Februaryy. The theme for this year was Connect.

The sections came together to connect and share the fun with other guides around the world. Each section participated in various activities to learn about guides in other countries, the world centres and experience other cultures.

Brigins Meeting - 20th January

One of the joys of the girls doing their badges, nice treats for everyone when it's the baking badge :-)

And the Brigins got to share what they like and what they would like to change or add to their Brigin uniforms. Jet packs, fluffy jumpers and Brigin runners were among the list. Hm, will pass that on to the uniform review committee and see what they can do :)

Merry Christmas to all our members

Brigins & Guides Halloween Party

Leaders jump out of a plane for CGI :)

On Sunday 11th October, Raheny Guiders Marie and Louise, along with other leaders from CGI,
took the plung and did a Sky Dive in aid of the Eastern Region 'Raise the Roof'
fundraising campaign, to fix the roof in Headquarters.

What an amazing experience and they raised a great sum for the campaign.
If you ask nicely, they might show you their videos of the jump! :)
