There are already 25 units meeting each week in Dereham and the surrounding villages, however this is not enough for all the girls who want to join Girlguiding Norfolk. There are a further 500 girls on the joining lists. So as not to disappoint all these young girls, Girlguiding Central Division needs adults to volunteer to help run Rainbow, Brownie and Guide units locally.
To highlight the work of Girlguiding Norfolk, Dereham, Swanton Morley and Mattishall, will be holding open evenings as part of National Volunteers Week on June 1-7. Everyone is welcome to come along and see what Girlguiding is about in your area.
Swanton Morley will be holding two open evenings. On Monday from 6pm - 7.30pm, they will be holding a Brownie open evening where they will be making musical instruments. On Wednesday from 6.45pm-8.15pm, they will be holding a Guide open evening that will have a sports theme. Both will be held at Swanton Morley School.

Dereham also has an open evening on Wednesday at King's Park Infant School from 6.00pm-7.30pm. 1st Dereham Brownies will be doing craft, playing games and singing and are welcoming anyone that wants to come along and see what they are doing.
