GIRLS who enjoy hiking, learning, mystery cooking and sleepovers are encouraged to join the Midland Butterfly Guides.

Leader Lorrell Watt, who recently took over the unit, said there were vacancies for girls aged five to ten years old living in Midland, Stratton, Jane Brook and surrounds.

“This term we will be going hiking, going on excursions to emergency services and the movies, looking at our environment, doing some mystery cooking and having a sleepover,” Ms Watt said.

“It’s going to be a fun program and we’d love to welcome some new faces in the five to ten years age group.”

They meet Tuesday evenings at the Stratton Community Centre for a program developing skills, friendships, outdoor learning and self-development.

The unit is also looking to build its leadership team and welcomes adult women who are interested to apply.

“Former Guides are very welcome to apply but no prior Girl Guiding experience is necessary and the only cost involved is time and energy,” Ms Watt said.

The levels of leadership include unit helper, assistant leader and qualified leader with Girl Guides WA providing training and support.

To join, contact Girl Guides WA at info@girlguideswa.org.au or 9479 9800.
