For the younger age group there are two active Rainbow groups.  Rainbows have fun! They play games, have parties and make things while developing life skills.

Whilst for the age range of 7-10 years there are the Brownies.  Brownies do it all! Their meetings are full of challenges, games and activities, usually ones that the Brownies have suggested themselves. We have 4 brownie units currently.

The Guide section is for girls aged 11-14.  Guides are encouraged to work together and independently, undertake challenges, enjoy the outdoors, help in the community, and develop life skills. We now have 3 Guide units, with a new unit which opened in January 2013.

And finally for those aged between 14 and 25 years there is a wide variety of oppportunities to continue guiding and develop skills in the Senior Section, either joining a Ranger unit and/or helping with younger units as a Young Leader.
