Girlguiding North Yorkshire West is excited to confirm a new Division Commissioner for our Division, Antoinette Stewart. Antoinette brings a wealth of experience with her and is looking forward to shaping and growing Guiding in .

Antoinette said:

I am extremely excited to be the new Division Commissioner for Knaresborough Guiding.

I moved to Knaresborough a couple of years ago and am really passionate about contributing to the wonderful Knaresborough community we are lucky to be part of. I have had a varied work career and I am currently the Senior HR Business Partner for Yorkshire Service NHS Trust.

I am hoping my background and skills will contribute to the invaluable experience and knowledge of the Knaresborough division team and look forward to working collaboratively with everyone to enhance the girls guiding experiences in Knaresborough.

I have very happy memories of being a Brownie and a Guide but haven’t had any guiding connection since then. I have started my Leader training and would encourage anyone who would like to help out to contact us. It’s a fantastic time to join and get involved with the development of our Birk Crag Residential Centre and New Guiding Programme.

All the leaders and helpers have offered me a friendly welcome and I can’t wait to get stuck in!

Girlguiding Knaresborough is looking for adult volunteers to help run the various Rainbow, Brownie & Guide groups in the town and surrounding villages.

Girlguiding is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK, with over half a million members. Thanks to the dedication and support of 100,000 amazing volunteers, we are active in every part of the UK, giving girls and young women a space where they can be themselves, have fun, build brilliant friendships, gain valuable life skills and make a positive difference to their lives and their communities. We build girls’ confidence and raise their aspirations. We give them the chance to discover their full potential and encourage them to be a powerful force for good. We give them a space to have fun.
