South West England Region’s first two International Community Experience weekends proved very popular and both were fully booked before the closing dates. The Guides who attended had a great time learning about global issues and taking part in a community project. 24 girls will now have the opportunity to build on the experience they gained by participating in an international trip in October 2017.

There will be two further weekends on 8th – 10th September 2017 at Somermead in Somerset, and 15th – 17th September 2017 at Thirtover Place, Berkshire. These will be followed up with a trip abroad during the Easter holidays of 2018.

This opportunity is for Guides aged 11 – 13 and the cost of the weekend is £50.00 per person. You will need to get your skates on though, the closing date is 30th June 2017 and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis!
