Annual Gathering 2018 – Tuesday 3 April, Ellesmere Port Civic Centre
Thank you to Dibbinsbrook Division for hosting the Annual Gathering on 3 April at Ellesmere Port Civic Centre. It was so lovely to see so many volunteers in such a lovely venue.
We celebrated a number of long service awards, ranging from 5 years to 50 years, which shows the achievement and commitment that our volunteers give to Girlguiding. Congratulations to everyone that received an award. To see the phots from the night click here or visit the Photo Gallery page.

Hadlow Fields – our Wirral campsite is celebrating its 40thanniversary in 2018. We had a wonderful presentation from Sue Dutton celebrating Hadlow over the years and the developments that have taken place.
There was also a lovely presentation showcasing all that Girlguding Wirral achieved in 2017, presented by our outgoing County Commissioner Linda Smallthwaite. https://youtu.be/zvXhWlW_GtU
