May Division Updates
As the summer holidays are approaching I would like to wish everyone well for
their camps and pack holidays. I hope you all have lots of fun and enjoy some
Thank you to everyone who submitted their accounts so timeously. It is a pity
we still have a few to come in. If you have not given your accounts to your
District Commissioner could you please do so as a matter of urgency.
I would like to thank everyone for all they do in Guiding. It is smashing to be
involved with such a great bunch of ladies.
Have a great summer holiday.
