1st Inverbervie Guides are looking for a volunteer to help run the unit as our current leader will be stepping down at Summer.

Perhaps you’ve helped before at another unit, in a different area? We provide training and support for all people taking on any position within guiding and no experience is necessary.

Without a leader to run the Guide unit we would have not choice but to close it despite the number of Guides increasing over the last year.

The Brownie unit is looking for a few volunteers to come and help out, either weekly or ocassionally to support the leader and help the girls whilst they do crafts and activities.
