Rainbows, Brownies and Guides from Tidworth and Netheravon have been taking part in UK Parliament Week 2017. They have been working on a resource developed by Girlguiding South West England in conjunction with the Houses of Parliament Outreach and Engagement Service.
Units have been engaging with democracy by holding mini elections complete with hustings and manifesto’s, exploring parliament by redesigning Big Ben and the Parliament chamber and have been empowered by learning about the suffrage movement.
Our MP Claire Perry, was delighted to hear of our involvement in Parliament Week and has invited us all to visit her at the Houses of Parliament. We are in liaison with her Westminster Secretary to arrange this.
There are currently spaces in all our sections for girls to join us, so if you are interested in your daughter joining the Rainbows, Brownies or Guides, or if you are thinking of volunteering with Girlguiding yourself, please register your interest at www.girlguiding.org.uk and one of the Girlguiding Volunteers will contact you direct.
