Aviemore 2016

Annual Meeting at Aviemore
What a weekend that was with more than 350 members from all over the country enjoying a fun time on 16th April 2016. It was a very fitting setting for Elizabeth's last annual meeting as chairman. It was with great pleasure that we welcomed Eileen Martin as our chairman designate.
Eileen, who is at present one of the Deputy Scottish Chief Commissioners, is well known to Trefoil Guild Scotland as she has been the Girlguiding representative on Trefoil Guild Scotland Executive for several years.
We all wish her all the best for the future in her role as our Chairman just as we thank Elizabeth for all her dedication and hard work  during the last 5 years.

TREFOIL GUILD SCOTLAND RAMBLING GROUP

Scotland's Rambling Group has been in operation since 2014. It meets on a monthly basis when approximately a dozen members enjoy each other's company and a day's healthy exercise capably led by Liz Howie. So far they have had many walks covering lots of interesting parts of the Central belt of Scotland. Liz has been encouraging those in more outlying areas to let her know about walks they are undertaking at a local level for those who are unable to travel to the central area of the country.
Liz's contact details are ehargyle@yahoo.co.uk and her telephone number is 01294 467881 for any members who are interested in this aspect of Trefoil Guild

Netherurd Activities

In 2015 two three-day breaks took place at Netherurd for members of Trefoil Guild Scotland. These breaks, ably organised and delivered by Beryl Luke, Programme Adviser and her team, had the theme of "I'm a Girl Guide - get me out of here!"  Many photographs were taken mainly at the second one in August in the Garden House when Gemma Huntigngford and Pauline Merchant were present for our official photoshoot.
This year's breaks in July (Garden House) and August (Main House) will relate to the centenary of the Senior Section.
This year's events have been organised by Mairi Duff, new Programme Adviser, and her team. Dates of these events are in the Calendar of this website 

STEP IN MY SHOES

"Step in My Shoes" is an idea which has grown in Scotland led by some Senior Section girls in Glasgow. . Girlguiding Scotland has backed this project developed  by humanitarian charity "Edinburgh Cares". The aim is to provide safe and comfortable footwear for refugees. It was hoped that 3000 pairs of used shoes and new socks would be collected from units throughout Scotland. When the information was passed on  at the Scottish Annual Meeting to Trefoil members some of them decided to join in. Both Alloa(Clackmannanshire) and Stranraer and Rhins(Wigtownshire) have sent their shoes (via Girlguiding Scotland) to the charity 
5600 pairs of shoes have now been collected and it is hoped that there will be another date for collection in November 2016

It is a welcome to Eileen Martin as she becomes the new Chairman for Scotland on 1st July.
As one of the Depute Scottish Chief Commissioners, Eileen is well known to Trefoil Guild in Scotland as she is the Girlguiding Scotland representative on the Scottish Executive.
