Blind man’s buff.

The Guides stand in a circle.

One Guide, blindfolded with her own scarf  [scarf is tied with a reef knot],stands in the centre of the circle and is gently shepherded as she moves towards someone on the circle.

She must try to identify the Guide by touch alone.

When she has guessed the identity they change places.

While the next Guide is having the blindfold tied on the circle moves around so that every Guide is in another place.

about this Girl Guide District

About this Girl Guide District

Hazelwood and Churchill first started when one girl wanted to be a Guide. transport was problematic.  So she started out as a “lone” Girl Guide.  Soon others joined her.  They met at the Hazelwood South Hall.  As Churchill begain to spring up Churchill Units were added.  Initially meeting in Churchill Itself.  The district was called Hazelwood.

Over the last 17 years many changes have occured.  The ‘new’ way allowed for fllexable units to be formed.  These work well for the smaller numbers of Guides attending.

The Hazelwood District Girl Guide Leader moved on.  Years went by until a new District leader could take her place.  Coinciding is the Hazelwood and Churchill Girl Guide District – as it is currently.  The District currently is composed of the District Leaders team (everyone 18 years and over [male or female], the leaders, the Gipps Guides ( 18 to 30 year old Guides) and of course the Youth members.  One meeting is on Tuesday 4.30 to 6pm, the other is just forming and meets on Wednesday 7 to 8.30pm.

Service being a big part of what this district is about. So there are always service projects going on. Out door activities are an essential part of all Guiding learning.  recognising, and working on challenges, learning stepping stones is important too.  So too are the recognitions that are part of these challenges.

Guiding is quietly regaining its identity today.  In recognition of the verbal encouragement one Guide makes to bring her friends along Guides National have a reward system.  Once the New girl has registered she then recieves an Ice Cream Badge.  Her Guide friend receives another Ice cream scoop.  You will see these worn on thespecial badges area of a sash.  Front bottom area.

Welcome to Guiding today.
