16th Harrow Brownies, Guides, Rangers
We are part of the World Wide Girl Guiding movement which is the largest voluntary organisation in the UK for girls and young women. We are open units having girls from all faiths and cultures.
This year our Brownie and Guides units are celebrating their 90 birthday.
Brownies is for girls between the ages of 7 and 10 years. We meet on Fridays, during school term times, from 6.00pm – 7.30pm. We have 3 qualified leaders with additional helper from 2 Rangers
We plan a varied programme each week which includes games, craft activities, challenges and badge work. From time to time we organize outings, events and camps with other packs in our district. We aim to ensure that the girls have fun, make new friends and learn new skills.
The leaders are all qualified Guiders.

The Guide company is for girls aged 10-14+ and meets between 7.30 pm. and 9.15 pm. on Friday evenings. Activities include games, cooking, crafts and badge work. Some of the evenings are planned by the girls themselves.
We support a different charity each year and at present are looking at the work of CamFed, a charity which provides schooling for girls in Africa.
We have a week camp each year and also a Winter Weekend away.
The leaders are Chris Hughes, Heena Mistry and Alison Dawson, helped by a group of young leaders – older girls now too old to be Guides.
Rangers Is a group for girls aged 14+. They meet every Friday between 7.30 pm. and 9.15 pm. Most of the girls have come up through Brownies and Guides.
