Elements 2024 is a county camp open to all Girlguiding Shropshire members.
The theme is the elements, Earth, Wind, Air, and Fire. The aim of the camp is to celebrate Girlguiding in Shropshire, with a focus on our impact on our world. Our residential camp is for Brownies, Guides, Rangers, and Young Leaders. There will also be a members visitor day on Sunday 28th July so that Rainbows and non-camping Brownies can join in the fun. Don’t worry if this is your first time camping we will be here to support you to have a great time, alongside experienced volunteers.

Nearly 700 Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Rangers, Young Leaders and Volunteers from Girlguiding Shropshire celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at Blists Hill Victorian Town on Saturday 4th June. Everyone was given a goody bag and a commemorative badge. They all had great fun exploring the various shops, displays and trying out the old fairground rides.
A member of 16th Shrewsbury Brownies (aged 9) took it upon herself to organise a fundraiser for the families over in Ukraine.
With the help of her mum and the amazing community around her she was able to collect a lot of essential items such as nappies, sanitary products, toiletries etc… as well as organise a coffee and cake afternoon to help raise funds!
In total she raised a whopping £1,591 and took away 3 cars full of provisions!
We are all so proud of her and she wanted to thank everybody who came along, donated and supported this cause.
Girlguiding Shropshire met with Julia Clarke, Director of Public Participation, to present Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals NHS Trust with 2 rainbows created at our ‘Together At Attingham’ event in September.
The presentation was on the behalf of our young members and the public who took part in creating these beautiful rainbows to give our eternal thanks to the NHS for being there for us all during the pandemic and everyday.
Over the weekend 25-26 Sept Girlguiding Shropshire held an event at Attingham Park, Shropshire for all members from the county.
There were 4 zones “Be Creative” “All About Guiding” “Fun and Games” “Adventures Outdoors” for the girls to take part in. The National Trust staff at Attingham Park gave excellent support and the trust members and visitors on the 2 days enjoyed watching the fun and friendship in the fine weather.
The Shropshire Way Challenge is for members of Girl Guiding Shropshire, between us, to walk the entire 200 miles of the newly way marked Shropshire Way between Thinking Day 2020 and Thinking Day 2021. You can do as much or little as you like, every step counts, and all participants can gain a badge for taking part. Some sections are easy, even wheelchair accessible, and others are much more challenging. If you don’t feel confident about taking girls out walking, then experienced leaders will be available to help. The challenge will include an I spy activity and geocaching may also be available in some sections.
