Newsletter June 2024

Hello everyone,

I think I may have spotted summer today – don’t let too many know as it might run away again.

This is always a busy time of year – and we have had two water sports events and there’s a coasteering event planned and more next time about our Gentian lunch.

I know some are going to FLAME. I hope you all have a fabulous time.  I’ll be about that weekend – catch me if you haven’t got an ‘I met the County Commissioner’ badge.

If you have been thinking of doing your GAW licence there is still room at the GAW camp in September – please contact office@girlguidingdorset.org.uk.  

There will also be a training on the Saturday for those who can’t stay for the weekend.  Book for this online.

I have been visiting several units handing out awards and certificates – one of the best parts of my role.  

Talking of which, my three year anniversary as County Commissioner has been and gone.  What a roller-coaster ride and over half way through.

Here is to two more years of fun!
