Commissioner's Introduction


Welcome to the Girlguiding Bristol & South Gloucestershire (BSG) Website

Girlguiding Bristol and South Gloucestershire (BSG) is part of Girlguiding UK – the largest organisation for girls and young women in the UK. Our Guiding County is divided into 11 Divisions which includes the city centre, towns and villages.

We are a friendly, forward looking County and our aim is to provide the best Girlguiding and life opportunities for all our members. We preserve the values of Girlguiding whilst ensuring we remain current to the needs of today’s girls.

We give girls a voice in the modern world, listen to their views and provide fun and friendship along the way.

We enable our members to discover, fulfil and exceed their potential through a wide range of exciting activities they may not otherwise have the opportunity to do.

Our programme is designed to enable girls and young women to make a positive contribution to their community and make a difference in the world.

We aim to support both our younger members and our adult volunteers to go that extra mile to truly encourage them to ‘Discover’ and ‘Grow’.

If you're already involved as a volunteer with Girlguiding BSG then please allow me to thank you for all that you do for our girls. Many guiding opportunities wouldn't happen without very special people like you.

Maria Jenkins – County Commissioner



Temporary closure of GO! and Girlguiding Website

Girlguiding's existing website and GO! will be down from 2nd August for up to three days to enable them to run tests and get everything ready for the launch of their exciting new website.  There will be a holding page to inform members.  The Guiding Manual will work as usual. 



There are free hourly sessions on offer for both rowing and canoeing at the BP Boathouse on "Open Doors Day" on Saturday 10th September.  These sessions are open to Guides, Senior Section, Rangers, Scouts, Explorers and Network.  A deposit is required to secure your booking but this will be refunded on the day.

County Commissioner's Blog

As I stand down as your County Commissioner, some of you have asked what next?  I will be turning my focus to my unit, which seems to be growing all the time, returning to my Division who I have had little contact with during the past five year.

I have a new role as National Council Member representing the South West Region and of course the continuing support to the Development Workers Megan Crossley and Viki Gardiner, until their current contracts finishes in September/October.

Will it be strange – yes it will be, but I have been working with Maria Jenkins over the last few months so I’m ready for the 1st April 2016 – watch this space!!!
