Other News:
With the National Youth Agency Readiness Level increase to Yellow, the advice from Girlguiding UK is to revert to the stricter extra Covid-19 rules which we were under for the Summer term 2021.  However, we are planning this Spring term 2022 to be as normal as possible - an email has been sent to Parents and Carer's reminding you of these extra rules.  Jackie is the only qualified Leader in the unit, with Andrew as a Unit helper and Ruby as Young Leader in training.  But it would still be great to find another person(s) who would like to join our Guiding family once a week in term time.  All volenteers are welcome, as long as they don't mind having a DBS check, either as a Unit Helper like Andrew, or to train to become a Unit Leader like Jackie.
