The 30th Reading (Park) Guides meet at Park United Reformed Church on Thursday evenings during school term time.

Guides is open to girls aged 10-14 and we have an active and varied weekly programme, with a team of wonderful leaders. guides body shop guides choc-fondue guides cookoutWe go on holidays, we attended ‘WINGS 2009’ an international jamboree with Guides and Scouts from all round the world. We likeguides to think we are quite a sporty lot, and enjoy playing rounders and football in Palmer Park, going bowling and swimming.

We have had a chocolate fondue and as you can see from the photos, some of us got a bit sticky but it was loads of fun. guides


Along with Go For It’s, badges, Church Parade and taking part in the Disability Awareness challenge and the Cupboard Technology Challenge we are pretty busy but having a brill time in the process.
