Redland Rangers: young women aged 14-25 welcome to join!

Do you have a daughter aged between 14-25? Redland Rangers is currently on the look-out for new Rangers to join their group!

Part of Girl Guiding UK, Redland Rangers meets fortnightly in term-time at the Scout Hut near Sefton Park Primary School.

The group opened in 2013 and offers young women many wonderful opportunities, enabling them to gain confidence, learn new skills and have great fun at the same time.

The rangers do all of the planning of girl-led activities, deciding for themselves what they would like to do with their leader, Gwin, there to support them. This year activities have included swimming at Henleaze lake, a barbecue and songs around a campfire, film night, night walk, Window Wanderland, games on Purdown, a murder mystery night, party games and tie-dyeing!

All Rangers follow a programme uniquely designed around their personal development and they can also take on a huge range of qualifications and awards, from Rangers Leadership Qualifications to the internationally recognised Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

Other badges include Festival Goer, Voting, Women’s Rights, Protesting, Entrepreneur, Genealogy and Blogging!

And, for young women with ambitions that extend beyond the UK, Rangers also offers opportunities such as international adventures – from working on a development project in a remote village, to representing UK guiding at an international conference.

Rangers also helps young women to navigate issues like mental health and body confidence; Rangers is all about developing confidence and giving young women a voice.

If you would like to join the Redland Rangers or just find out more, please email Gwin on gwinear@btinternet.com.
