About This Design
Over the last century, the Girl Guides has become part of the national life of Britain. Today, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts enjoys a membership of millions throughout the world, helping girls to get the best possible start in life. In 2010 the Girl Guide movement reached its centenary milestone, a remarkable achievement which was celebrated with a commemorative 50p coin struck by the Royal Mint.
A few determined girls turned up at the first Boy Scout Rally in 1909 asking for ‘something for the girls’. Just months later the Girl Guides was formed. 100 years on, in 2009,and Girlguiding UK was stronger than ever, with over 550,000 members, and there were more than 10 million Guides around the world. Guiding has always given girls opportunities they might not have elsewhere.
