Find out about Guides – what uniform they wear, what age they are and where they meet (Leader Information)


PR Material can be sourced from National Office – e.g. images of Guides in their uniform


To help Brownies understand what happens at Guides and look forward to moving on to Guides.

This activity can be done in a variety of ways, e.g. you as a Brownie Leader can teach your Brownies about Guides or alternatively a local Guide Leader or some local Guides could visit your Unit to tell the Brownies about Guides. Below is some useful information for you if you are going to lead the activity with your Brownies.

Some basic facts about Guides are as follows:
· Guides range from aged 10-14 years
· Their uniform consists of a pink t-shirt with a blue stripe or a blue t-shirt with a pink stripe along with a blue hoodie with a pink logo. The neckerchief is white with pink and blue Celtic knots on it. The Guides can choose to either put their badges on a blue sash or on their Guide bag

It is important that you share with your Brownie Unit the details about your local Guide Unit, where and when they meet etc. so they have the details they need to carry on their Guiding journey.

This is where it would be extremely useful to invite the local Guide Leader or some local Guides to come and visit your Brownie Unit to tell the Brownies about Guides and to answer any questions they might have about moving up to the next Branch.
