Girl power: Sutherland Girl Guides has reopened after a 10-year absence and hopes to recruit more junior guides such as Caitlin Tully and Chia Walters (front). Picture: Jane DysonTHE Girl Guides are returning to Sutherland for the first time in a decade and 25 girls have already been recruited.
The Guides group is coming back to the suburb due to popular demand and is inviting others to sign up to become a Guide.
At a recent open day at the Guides hall in Eton Street, Sutherland, the girls showed what guiding was all about, took part in fun activities and recruited members for the Sutherland branch.
Sutherland district leader Sarah West was excited Guiding had returned to Sutherland.
“Girls and women from Sutherland can once again learn valuable leadership and life skills, gain qualifications, meet new friends and serve the community,” Ms West said.
“It’s great that the community can once more benefit from Girl Guides.”
Oyster Bay mother and Jannali Girl Guides district leader Janice Tully said the movement had opened many doors for her two daughters.
Elizabeth Tully, 12, recently took part in an international Girl Guides jamboree in Tasmania and Caitlin Tully, 10, is working towards her Junior Baden-Powell Award.
