Benelux & France AGM in Delft

The Benelux & France Trefoil Guild enjoyed a weekend in Delft for their AGM as part of the BGO Benelux & France Training Weekend. We had a wonderful tour of Delft from local Guild members, discussed the use of social media and technology, heard an update about TOPAZ and held our AGM.

We also shared enjoyable evenings with the B&F Leaders. On the first evening we took part in a quiz about the new Guiding programme and then during the second evening we created balloon sculptures and animals - a new skill to take back to our local Guilds!

More photos can be seen in the 2018 Gallery.

Balloon Fun in Brussels

The Brussel Trefoil Guild members meet as regularly as they can and their meeting last night involved making balloon animals and flowers - a craft taken home by those who attended the weekend in Delft.

They also greeted the members on the TGIFC Facebook page using Facebook Live - if you are a member of the group you can watch their video here.  

Bermuda News

Glen Aston received the following Thinking Day update from Andrea Simmons, Treasurer of the Bermuda Trefoil Guild

'Our Thinking Day was great and particularly special for our Trefoil Guild as we had a few minutes on the program to present a plaque to Girl Guiding Bermuda in memory of our first Chairperson - Barbara Millett. All of her family were in attendance for the service and presentation which made it extra special.'

See photos in the 2018 Gallery.


New TGIFC member Pauline Finch shared this beautiful photo of Playa Blanca where she and her friend Pam Hewson live in Lanzarote. See a larger version of the photo in our 2017 Gallery.

It is great to see the fabulous places around the world that we find TGIFC members.  Please share your photos on our
Facebook page  or by sending them to Glen Aston.
