The 3rd Wisbech Guide Unit is set to celebrate it’s 100th birthday next month and is looking for former members to help celebrate the milestone.

The Unit was first set up on July 25 1917 and meetings even continued throughout the First and Second World War.

Over the years the girls have enjoyed trips to ‘Our Chalet’ in Switzerland, one of the World Guide Centres, which have enabled the girls to gain a wider understanding of Girlguiding beyond the UK.

The Unit would love to hear from any former Guides or people involved in the Unit who would either like to attend the centenary celebratory tea or share their memories of their time involved in the Unit.

Invitations have been sent out over the past few weeks to some individuals but records do not allow all those involved to be contacted directly.
