Connect with our division team to get support with all aspects of guiding

Our division is led by a team of volunteers, known as the Division Executive, who are our Charity Trustees. They work together to support delivery of safe, fun guiding activities for everyone in Bath Division

The Division Executive is led by our Division Commissioner, Kirsty Pitkin

Kirsty became Division Commissioner in November 2016. She has been volunteering with Girlguiding since she was 16 years old and is a leader with 1st Bath (St Luke’s) Brownies. Kirsty was previously District Commissioner for Bath South East District.

In her professional life, Kirsty works in financial services as CEO of a regulatory compliance consultancy firm. She has background in communications and creative writing.

In her spare time, Kirsty enjoys reading, playing the keyboard and the harp, and looking after her house rabbit, Bambi.
