A new guiding unit in Edinburgh is inviting more girls to join them on a journey of fun, friendship and adventure. 

The 2nd Forth Rangers are offering girls aged 14-18 a space to be themselves and take part in new experiences. New members can look forward to an exciting and varied programme of activities, events and trips where they will make lifelong friends and a space to have fun.

The group have taken part in an action-packed programme of activities including camping and caving at Girlguiding Scotland’s outdoor activity centre at Netherurd, watching Lewis Capaldi live at Tartan Gig – Girlguiding Scotland’s exclusive concert for its members, as well as a raft building competition in their meeting place.

The 2nd Forth Rangers meet on Monday evenings at a venue in the Granton area. The group is funded by the CashBack for Communities Programme which has funded nearly 2 million activities and opportunities for young people.

Hannah the group’s leader, said: “This new unit means even more girls can enjoy all that guiding has to offer. We’ve been away on trips, watched Lewis Capaldi live and the girls have made new friends. I’ve seen them grow in confidence and try new things. We’re always really happy to welcome new members so come along and give us a try! Girlguiding Scotland is open to all girls whatever their background or circumstances so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’re interested in joining.”

Chelsea, age 15, who is a member of the 2nd Forth Rangers said: “Being part of Rangers means I can learn new skills like teambuilding. We also got to go to Tartan Gig which was amazing. My favourite band were the Vamps!”

Hannah, age 14, added: “I like coming to Rangers because it’s an escape from everyday life.”
