Kirkheaton Guides has 24 guides, 2 young leaders and 4 adult leaders.
We do the following things – camping, cooking, arts and crafts, street dance, international evenings including music and food from around the world, canoeing, archery, high ropes, sugar craft and chocolate work.
Kirkheaton Guides is very successful in helping guides achieve the highest award for the guide section of the Baden Powell Challenge – 10 challenges from 5 zones and a residential adventure. We also undertake to train young leaders to a point of recognised qualification.
We also provide some community service and have provided emergency food aid for local people via the Welcome Centre, Lord Street and bag packed at Sainsbury’s.
