Meet the Communication Team

Janice – County Public Relations Adviser

Hi I’m Janice and I’m the County Public Relations Adviser, and also Chair of Marketing and Communication. I enjoy taking part, help plan and organise, support and advise; on all sorts of county activities.

In my day job, I am a publication and information specialist, where I manage and source information.

I am a guide leader and enjoy working with the girls, I’m constantly impressed with their enthusiasm and skills and happy to admit that I take guidance from them re Social Media!


Karen – Graphic Design

Hi I’m Karen and I’m the Graphic Designer for the Marketing and Communication Team. I’m also a Brownie Leader for a very busy unit on a Monday evening which can be exhausting but extremely rewarding, especially when you see how much the girls get out of it.

In my day job I’m an Senior Creative Services Officer and in the little spare time I have left from doing that, I love crafting and making things for family and friends.


Margaret – Proof Reading & County Emails

Hi, I’m Margaret and I help out with checking the county emails and proof reading county documents.  I am an assistant leader for one of the Bearsden Brownie units- seeing the girls’ faces light up when they are having fun and learning new things makes it very fulfilling.


Laura – Website Maintenance

Hi I’m Laura and I’m one of the leaders for the 1st Milngavie Guides. I enjoy planning and organising nights and events for the girls based on what the unit’s interests are for that particular term.  Seeing the guides enjoying themselves really makes it all worthwhile.


Lesley- Administrator

Hi I’m Lesley and a Brownie leader in Clydebank.  I pop in and out of the Comms team when needed to help with a variety of admin roles that crop up.


Heather- Social Media & Growth

I have been in GirlGuiding since I was a Brownie and never left.
I am the unit leader of 5th Kirkintilloch Guides but have been in many other Guiding positions at local or county level including District commissioner, Division Training coordinator and county development advisor.
I am very active in the MarComms team by being involved in social media for example facebook, twitter, instagram and Pinterest. I help with some website elements too. I have accepted the role of Membership growth coordinator as there is a link between growth and Marcomm.
I actively promote Girlguiding via online methods such as Facebook page or local groups to engage more volunteers or girls.
I really enjoy time with the girls and adults,  making new friends and attending the training where networking is essential to get excellent ideas or new methods.
If you require any help with funding, recruitment, retention or any PR questions please let me know.
