 Awards at County Level for Adult Volunteers

Do you know a volunteer within Girlguiding South Wiltshire who is going above and beyond to provide excellent guiding and deserves special thanks? Do you know someone within Girlguiding South Wiltshire who shows great courage?

 

  Good Service Brooch    County Butterfly Award

If you are a volunteer within Girlguiding Wiltshire South then it’s time to nominate them for an award.  We have many awards available within our County, South West England Region and nationwide.

The County's Awards Committee meets three times a year but you can nominate anyone at any time.   The committee comprises of the County Commissioner as Chair and an administrator.  There is also a trainer, a commissioner and then several recent recipients which change with each meeting to allow a wide cross section of volunteers to be involved and take an active role in reviewing the nominations.

Being recognised for the service to your local community is a very special honour, so if you think someone deserves it, you nominate them. Don’t think everyone else will do it because someone could miss out.
