|Girls from the age of 10 are eligible to join the Guides.
This is the next stage following on from the Brownies although it
is not necessary to have been in the Brownies to become a Guide. The
meetings are fun, they learn new skills, make new friends and help
each other. They work in groups known as Patrols and are actively
encouraged to plan their own activities to give them more independence
and to share in decisions that affect themselves and others in their
group. The Guide leader does offer support and guidance concerning
this but the onus is on the girls making the decision themselves.
There are a wide variety of badges to work towards which they can
do so at their own pace, giving them a great sense of achievement
and purpose. Trips and events are planned through out the year, some
even as far afield as London! Occassionally the Guides attend special
Church services at the Holy Trinity Church in Freckleton but this
in no way affects the membership of Guides from other religious denominations.
The Guide Motto is "Be Prepared" and this is most useful
in all aspects of a guides life.

She is an experienced music teacher who pioneered Pre-School Music Groups in the Fylde and has successfully run these for the last 25 years. These have now been developed over the last 10 years, from independent groups attended by parents and children to taking the classes into nurseries ranging from as far afield as Mellor in East Lancs, to Blackpool.
Children, from eighteen months up to school age, are welcome in the half hour classes and have great fun using rhythm sticks, percussion instruments, learning rhymes and songs, and basic music theory such as pitch and rhythm.
This work is based upon the Key Stage 1 Music requirements, whilst at the same time helping to develop speech, concentration and memory retention.
Each class costs £3.50 and for further information Pippa can be contacted on 077025 42620.
Pippa is also a fully qualified Piano teacher (GRSM, ARCM, DipEd), having taught pupils of all ages and ability for over 30 years. For piano lessons Pippa can be contacted as above. (077025 42620)
