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.

Our Voices

Hi I'm Kimberley LaSER Champion, have you had a chance to look at the KeepSafe Resource which we have released to encourage online safety? It is aimed at Brownies and Rainbows but could be used for any section!

My favourite thing about this KeepSafe that you don’t need internet access, it’s about learning the principles in a fun and engaging way so that our younger members know how to stay safe online. Take a look and see if it’s something you could fit into your Unit program before the end of 2016!

Other LaSER Champion news.. We’ve appointed some new Champions, we have a new section on the LaSER website (where you can find KeepSafe!) and we are now going to start working on our next exciting campaign which is called #Take10!

Through my Champion role, I’m also involved in the planning for the LaSER Senior Section Spectacular Event in London this September. It’s called Use Your Voice and focuses on learning the skills to make sure your voice is heard. If you haven’t seen it already, take a look at the LaSER website for some more info, it’s an opportunity not to be missed!
