If you would like to work with young women, provide them with new skills and organise exciting activities and adventures the Girl Guides need you.

Chasing rainbows is not just for weather watchers and Adele, Woodbury Girl Guides is looking for volunteers to train up to become Rainbow Leaders for the youngest section of Girlguiding UK.

Any girl between the age of five and seven can join Rainbows and learn new skills and try out new experiences through a programme of exciting activities, trips and adventures both in weekly unit meetings and at special events.

There is a growing waiting list to become a Rainbow in Woodbury as well as in Exmouth due to the lack of volunteer leaders.

Girls sometimes have to wait for years to join in the fun and due to a lack of leaders it is likely some will never get the chance to become a Rainbow.

If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a volunteer leader with Woodbury, Budleigh or Exmouth Rainbows, Brownies or Girl Guides then please call Sarah Hales on 07873735588 or email
