Sussex East


Welcome to SUSSEX EAST  

A beautiful County where one is never more than about an hour’s drive from the coast.  We stretch from the Ancient town of Rye in the East to Hove in the West, Eastbourne in the South to Wadhurst in the North.  At present we have 25 Guilds with a total membership of 450, spread across this large County. 

The County of Sussex East came about in 1965 when, for Guiding purposes, it was felt the time was right because of the increasing numbers joining the movement, to divide the County into two.

There is a wealth of history in East Sussex, whose County Town is Lewes. The most famous of course is The Battle of Hastings in 1066.  The Cinque Ports are another important part of our County’s history.  We also have the glorious Weald area; the South Downs National Park and the Seven Sisters Country Park with their magnificent white cliffs.  With the history and the many attractions the County has to offer, there is always something for Trefoil members of all ages to do and see.

County Trefoil has an extremely good relationship with Girlguiding, and are invited to be involved in County events; this together with giving service and support in their own area to the Units of our younger sections, keep us young at heart and as active as possible.
