The 100th Anniversary of the Founding of the Girl Guides
By 1910 Robert Baden-Powell’s scouting movement was taking off all over the world, so he asked his sister Agnes to start a similar group for girls.
Through a mixture of fun, adventure and friendship the movement has inspired each new generation to face the challenging of growing up and to be the best they can be.
The trefoil logo represents the threefold promise of the Guides – ‘I promise that I will do my best, to be true to myself and develop my beliefs, to serve the Queen and my community, to help other people and to keep the Guide Law.’
