The Wirral peninsula is situated between the River Mersey and River Dee, with beautiful coastal scenery and a rich heritage. This makes for a compact and easily accessible Guiding county with a close working relationship across all sections and all Divisions.
The County is split into 9 geographical areas called Divisions these are, Arrowebrook, Bebington, Birkenhead, Deeside, Dibbinsbrook, Ellesmere Port, Hinderton, Wallasey and West. Each Division has a Division Commissioner who is also a Trustee for the County. Wirral County is one of the 17 Guiding counties that make up the North West England Region, and we have around 4,000 girl and volunteer members.
