Babergh and Samford District Guiding

General Details

Babergh and Samford District Guiding is the district that encorporates all of the villages within our area.  It covers the villages with units currently available near the edge of the Suffolk/Essex border of East Bergholt and Capel St Mary, along to Brantham and Holbrook and through to Shotley.  We also cover the surrounding villages including Copdock, Washbrook and Bentley (unfortunately those units have had to close but would you be interested in reopening them?).   

We have Rainbow Units for girls aged 5-7, Brownie Units for girls aged 7-10,  Guide Units for girls aged 10 to 14 and Senior Section opportunities for 14-26 year olds.
