AN ASHBOURNE girl guide group is on the hunt for more adults to come forward and help to run its meetings.

Rainbows has two units that meet every week but currently there are 45 more girls that want to join in with guiding in the Ashbourne district, which means at least four adult leaders need to volunteer to help form another group.

Rainbows groups meet for around an hour between 5.30pm and 7.30pm and are set up for girls aged between five and seven and take part in an array of activities. Adult volunteers will be given support from other leaders in the district and any training they require.

One Leader said: “Since joining guiding I have made new friends and have had so many opportunities to do things that I wouldn’t normally have had the chance to do.

“Already this year I have had archery and canoeing sessions on camp and been to a Guides-only pop concert at the Manchester Evening News Arena.”
