Trefoil Guild is a section of Girl Guiding the members of which pass on their skills and knowledge to Rainbows the youngest branch, the Brownies, Girl Guides including the Senior Section and Rangers. Some members are leaders and unit helpers. We are often asked to give grants to allow Guides to attend jamborees etc held in foreign countries.
We also have our own opportunities to take on new personal challenges.
Our group meet once a month but also are invited to other Guilds within our area. We have quiz nights and invite speakers to give us talks on their specialized subjects for which we always give a donation to their cause which is normally a charity.
