Guiding in the Scout and Giide Historical Society

Approx one third of the intending members so far have a Guiding background. I think that Guiding has much to teach us in the way Guide history is being preserved at County ad District level, such people are thin on the ground in Scouting.

We are heartened GirlGuiding UK's response to our intention to form the Society. Karen Taylor Archivist, writes "I have no doubt that the many enthusiasts of guiding and scouting history in the world will be very excited to hear of your proposals".

"As the Archivist for Girlguiding UK I would like to be kept abreast of news and events with regards to this new society, as you say having a contactable body such as this could indeed prove beneficial to my work."
