Dorset Trefoil

Trefoil is for anyone 18 and over who supports Girlguiding, Scouting and the community. We have guilds all over Dorset so there won’t be one far from you. Members take part in all sorts of activities, many arranged by the County, others by your local guild.

For more information contact our County Chair, Sarah Murray – e-mail:-

Trefoil Challenges

We have several challenges you can work towards – either on your own or with others.

And of course there is a badge at the end of it.

Our most popular is the Voyage award which is in 3 stages – bronze, silver and gold.


Our latest challenge is called Motivate.  

This is based on our key messages:- Find Friendship, Get Active, Give, Support, Get Involved

Other challenges are our STARS challenge in 5 sections and the Regional challenge WOW (Wellbeing Our Way)
