Girlguiding is for all girls. We give girls their own space, we give girls a voice and we change as the lives of girls change. Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Rangers meet at St Edmund’s each week during school term time.
Rainbows is for girls aged 5 to 7. Brownies is for girls aged 7 to 10. Guides is for girls aged 10 to 14. Rangers is for girls and young women aged 14 to 26. All the groups have adult leaders and young leaders aged 14+ and always welcome extra volunteers. Meetings take place as follows in the Scout and Guide headquarters building in the church grounds:
7th Roundhay Rainbows – 4.30pm to 5.30pm
7th Roundhay Brownies – 6pm to 7.30pm
1st Roundhay Rainbows – 4.30pm to 5.30pm
1st Roundhay Brownies – 5.45pm to 7pm
7th Roundhay Guides – 7.10pm to 8.45pm
Roundhay District Rangers – 8pm to 9.30pm
1st Roundhay Guides – 7.30pm to 9pm
Each group sets its own fees based on their expenses. These are usually paid termly and are currently in the region of £25 per term.
Members of all groups have the opportunity to attend the monthly church parades at St Edmund’s as well as other trips including camps and holidays for Brownies and older. Our members do not have to be church goers as we welcome members from any religion or none.
