A message from our President, Margaret Crawford

A message from our President, Margaret Crawford

When Girl Guiding launched “Future Girl” we certainly did not anticipate what 2020 would bring!

Sadly many events had to be cancelled which was such a shame after all the planning and preparation but we have them still to look forward to!

One of the great things about Girl Guiding is the amazing connections and friendships we make and the skills learned – these skills we now find so useful when having to face the challenges of ‘lockdown’. Nothing creates connections quite like overcoming obstacles together.

I know many of you are Key Workers and others have put their skills learned to good use whether sewing scrubs, scrub bags, masks; cooking and baking; delivering to those of us ‘cocooning’; keeping in touch with girls – setting them challenges, etc etc. Hopefully when we get back to ‘normal’, we will have become more responsible citizens and will be happier with the simpler things in life!

I continue to think of you all each Sunday night as I light my candle in the window from 1910 till 2020

Stay well and safely

Love, Margaret
