Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

What happened to the Guides membership

In the early to mid 1990’s there was so much change going on in the Australian Girl Guide Movement that people just left.  These people could or would not handle the change they thought was going to happen.  Girl Guides was going to change.  Well that was a fact! ~  but change into what?  This fear of the unknown was previlant.  Rather than work with the changes so that a positive vibrant front was presentable a large void developed.  Other organisations benefitted…. much to their delight. Guiding is a survivor.  So it’s members learn to be resilient. We are females in a male dominated world.  We have to be resilient.

There will always be members in organsations that have a smug attitude.  There will also be underhanded and down right dirty adusive attitudes. How ever although we acknowledge these attitudes we do not have to be like them or take the attitude on board ourselves.

The Hazelwood and Churchill Guide District has many levels operating. Guides has a motto: Once a Guide always a Guide. Once we have made our Promise we treasure it.  Our Guide promise is there to live by and to come back to when and if we forget about it.
