Call for girls to sign up to Girl Guiding

GIRLS and potential leaders are being called on to help to open new guide and brownie groups around the Northgate area of Darlington.

The numbers of people attending town centre rainbow, brownie and girl guide groups has dropped, with units based in North Lodge closing more than two years ago.

Judith Aird, Commissioner for North Lodge District Guiding, said: “I am seeking to reverse the trend. We want to be able to offer again the same opportunities for fun, friendship and the development of skills to a wide range of girls.

“There are two main thrusts to my campaign. Firstly, I am very interested in re-opening the 32nd Darlington Brownies Pack on Corporation Road.

“We feel that Guiding has a lot to offer the local community and would ideally like to recruit at least one leader from the Bangladeshi community there. We cannot offer guiding to these girls until we have secure and sufficient leadership for the pack.”

“Secondly, the only guide company in North Lodge district closed suddenly last year. We have now found the nucleus of a leadership team to re-open the unit and want to tell girls aged ten to 14 that there will be a place for them to come.”

The new unit will meet in Northgate United Reformed Church on a weekday night. For more information email girlguidingNorthLodge@gmail.com

It is interesting, as a former US Girl Scout leader, to wonder if UK Girl Guides are leaving scouting for the same reason: all Guides and Scouts fund the UK-based World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), one of the largest orgs that lobbies for population control around the world. Girl Scouts of the USA is now trying to deny that its 3.3 million American Girl Scouts are members of WAGGGS, but WAGGGS will gladly tell the world that all 10 million Guides and Scouts are represented by WAGGGS delegates as they push for "sexual rights" for children (including contraception, abortion and sterilization without parental knowledge) and homosexual promotion under the guise of "gender equity". Last year, American parents began quitting troops and leaving calls for membership renewal unanswered. Could this be a global trend? Boycott Girl Guide / Scout cookie sales and investigate for yourself.

As a Lifetime Mbr. of the U.S. Girl Scouts I now spend my time exposing the liberal,progressive,
femenist agenda that the girls club uses to indoctrinate our next generation of youth. It is no surprise that the Girl Guides as well as the Girl Scouts are in steep decline. Parents are the vicars of their children and will not permit upon learning of the pro abortion...pro sexualization agenda that the scouts have to allow their daughters to be participants. Please pray for those with the courage to get the facts out. www.100questionsfort
