As the new term gets underway, here are a few notices from the Bath Guide Shop to help you manage your badges and resources for 2018, and take advantage of the shop loyalty scheme…

World Thinking Day 2018

World Thinking Day 2018 badges at £1, are now available. Please could you send your orders to by 5th February 2018.

Badge Stock Levels

We are continuing to reduce shop badge and resource stocks in light of the programme changes and therefore it would be helpful if leaders can place orders in advance so as to avoid disappointment –

Our recent stocktake has highlighted high levels of some badges and it would be good if a few units could take on the challenge of trying these badges (download the list from the link below).

In particular, we would like to encourage you to try the ‘The Together We Can’ resource. This is multi-sectional and covers topics such as the environment, women’s health, education and food poverty – with different badges for what you do around the topic. Please ask within your District for a copy of the resource.


Surplus Badges

A number of Brownie leaders brought in ‘surplus badges’ and their units will be receiving repayments totalling over £100 soon. If any other leaders have badges they would like to put into the scheme, please leave them in a labelled parcel in the shop.

Shop Loyalty Scheme

We are continuing with the Bath Guide Shop customer loyalty scheme into 2018. Over 30 units should be receiving a voucher in January to use in the shop, which will reflect how much leaders and parents spent in the autumn term. Please remind parents of your unit number/name – ‘Tuesday Brownies’ requires quite a bit of questioning by the shop volunteers to work it out!
