I am pleased to announce that Val Robinson of 1st Southminster Guides and Becky Diss of 1st Burnham-on-Crouch Guides have both been recognised for their contribution to Girlguiding in Essex North East and been given a Leaders award.

The next round of the award for girls and leaders has a closing date of Friday 21st May 2021 with nominations needing to be received at the County Office by this date.  All the information and relevant forms are in the members area of the Essex NE web site.

We must stress that the JPF work with the 11 to 25-year age range and therefore it is only members/leaders of guide and ranger units who can be nominated for these awards.
