Bear Hunt

12th Clydebank Guides  recently went on a Bear hunt.

It’s a lovely walk in a wooded area just a 5 minute walk from Westerton train station.  There are wood carvings of some woodland creatures and the group of Bears at the end.

They usually do the walk on a guide night and the girls all love it.


3rd Vale of Leven Guides travelled to Narnia where they helped defeat Jadis and they even had a visit from Santa.  They also celebrated a birthday!

Despite travelling to Narnia, no 3rd Vale residential is complete without Fajitas (one year the leaders thought they would treat the Guides to takeaway and there was mutiny) so they made sure to work them into the theme!

Beauty and the Beast

Like hundreds of thousands of Girlguiding members, 3rd Vale of Leven Guides went to see the live action version of Beauty and the Beast when it was released…but before that, members were invited to “Be our Guest” at a sleepover where they thought up their own fairy tales, designed new outfits for Belle, made time stand still and shared what made each of them beautiful on the inside as well as on the outside.

One of the leaders may have required a nap at the cinema!!

3rd Vale of Leven Guides have been lucky with the weather recently and have taken advantage of this at unit meetings!  Getting outside and playing…or making up gymnastic routines!!


Clydebank Girls Hit Cumbrae

Thanks to Awards for All – 6th Clydebank Guides had an amazing weekend at Cumbrae Watersports Centre.  We all had a go at Windsurfing (some even managing to do it on their head!), Canadian Canoeing, Pico Sailing, Catamaran Sailing and Dingy Sailing.

The instructors were great, the food was fab and the accommodation was shear luxury – a highly recommended outdoor experience.
