Are you aged 11-14? Would you like to be part of Girlguiding but cannot attend weekly meetings? Then Kent East Link Guides could be for you!

Kent East Link Guides (KE Links) is open to all girls across the county who are not able to attend regular Guide meetings.  Perhaps you live in a rural area without a Guide unit nearby, or maybe you go to boarding school and cannot make weekly meetings?

By Joining KE Links you can enjoy all the benefits that Guiding can offer without attending regular meetings.

KE Links is co-coordinated and run by trained, qualified Guide Leaders who also run their own non-Link Guide units. Your main contact is Renee Grier, whose Guiding name is 'Robin'.

As a KE Link Guide you will be linked to Robin’s own unit and will be invited to all their special events: camps, holidays, sleepovers and outings. There will be lots of opportunity to have fun, learn new skills, make new friends and try out some things you’ve never done before!

KE Link Guides also hold their own special events. They meet together once a term for a day to have fun together, share achievements, gain badges and certificates. Most of their communication is by email, post, phone or text.

Camps and Holidays

Each year there are regular opportunities to join in residential events. These may be weekends away, single night sleepovers or week long holidays. Sometimes the Guides camp in tents and sometimes indoors. These holidays give girls the chance to get to know each other better, face new challenges and take part in fun, rewarding activities.

Tamsin, our new County Commissioner writes: Well, they say time flies when you’re having fun and they aren't wrong!  

First let me take some time to thank each and every one of you who give up your time and energy to help make Girlguiding Kent East the amazing organisation it is. A special thank you goes out to Jackie and Melanie for a fantastic 5 years and making it a hard act to follow.  

I have been in post for nearly 2 months and boy has it been exciting. From all the lovely messages and cards congratulating me on my new role, to planning wonderful events for girls and leaders across the County, appointing new members of the County Exec to meeting up with new ones, it has been a busy, busy time.  

As we all know the new programme is coming and one of the big challenges will be the training and roll out required to ensure success. Opportunities for training and other exciting roles will be on our County website and via the courier, no experience is needed just enthusiasm.  

I am looking forward to working with all of you over the next 5 years.
