Looking for a hobby?

We could not carry out our activities without the voluntary support of the women who run the units as Leaders, hold district posts, or who help as non-uniformed Unit Helpers.  We welcome younger leaders, young mums, early retirees or anyone who would like to work with children and experience amazing opoprtunites.  So if you're looking for a fun and rewarding hobby, that also looks good on your CV, explore our website to find out more and then register at
