GirlGuiding Pencarrow

As you may know I am a GirlGuiding Leader - with the youngest group, 5 and 6 year olds, called Pippins. I love it!

Through my involvement as a volunteer I have had opportunities to do many other roles within Guiding and have even scored my dream job - working for GirlGuiding NZ in their Lower North office in Wellington. This is just a temporary job while the administrator is on maternity leave but I am making the most of it.

One of my volunteer roles has been as part of the Management Team - helping to oversee the running of the entire Region - from Lower Hutt to Pahiatua. It has been great to see the bigger picture of Guiding and help with running events on a wider scale.

Late last year I volunteered (with the help of The Geek and some other leaders) to set up a Website to advertise and resource GirlGuiding in Pencarrow Region. This is WAY beyond my regular skill set but I have enjoyed the challenge and I am really pleased with how it is coming together. Please go and check it out and let me know what you think.

Looks pretty slick according to The Hubby.... he was impressesed. I like it too - although clearly you can tell my brain is fried.... I immediately thought of that dulux colour ad: "girl guides...pencarrow...girl guides....pencarrow....." Oh ok, I'll go away now with that fried brain!!
