Guides Tonight & Next Week – Please Read – IMPORTANT


Hi All,

Hall construction is still happening at the hall. Concrete was poured Monday (yesterday).

Due to the ongoing construction we have decided to cancel guides tonight & next week. Please acknowledge this message & pass it on to other guide members.

Also next week, I will be attending my daughters presentation night at Chelsea PS & school interviews (plus any other guides at Chelsea PS – Seniors).

Due to the construction, we have postponed the sleepover to July 28th – more details to follow soon. With no front yard to play in, the back yard will have tents, plus any other issues that might arise before then, we have made the decision to postpone.


Junior & Gumnut Guides – Help Needed Tonight


Hi All,

Due to reasons beyond my control I do not have enough parent helpers to run Junior & Gumnut guides tonight. Ratios are important for both the safety & the enjoyment of guides. I have numerous leaders unavailable to attend tonight plus parents who are not well who were going to attend.

If you can assist, please comment here. Without parent help, I will have to postpone our cooking night tonight as I cannot run all activities on the adult ratio i currently have.


Jamboree Participants – Victorian Contingent Camp

Jamboree 2018

To Jamboree 2018 Participants attending Victoria Contingent Camp on Friday 25-27th May 2018 in Seymour……….

There is a few jamboree participants attending the camp from our unit. Carpooling is going to be our best option as Seymour camp is approximately 160kms one way. I have had a few parents indicate they can car pool a few guides Friday night & a few parents who are available Sunday for car pooling.

I have to pick up Jess early on Sunday due to another girl guide commitment in Moorabbin from 1pm-7pm. I can bring home a few guides if they are willing to leave at 10:30am Sunday (if so, you need to advise the contingent leader in advance).

Please comment here if you can assist with car pooling either Friday or Sunday.
