THE leadership team at second Ammanford Guides is looking for members to join its group.

Groups are gradually easing back into face-to-face meetings since the first coronavirus lockdown in line with Government guidelines.

Guides is for girls aged 10-14 plus and is an opportunity to make life-long friends, complete their Duke of Edinburgh award when they turn 14, volunteer for other units in the district, go on camps and most importantly, have fun.

Guide leader Jane Jones reopened the Ammanford unit - which first opened in August 1927 - last year with fellow leader Leah Pompa.

The original guide hall on Manor Road is currently not fit for purpose, with meetings - pre-Covid - taking place in the St John's Abulance Hall in Margaret Street.

During the coronavirus pandemic the girl guide group was forced to close for a period but during the later summer months they managed to hold outdoor meetings.

Jane said: "We are a small unit but we are hoping that more girls will join us very soon.

"We offer a full range of activities and adventures. In February this year over 400 girls from Girlguiding Carmarthenshire slept at the Botanic Gardens of Wales. Great fun was had by all with meals and entertainment provided.

"Our aim is to give girls in Ammanford the chance to meet with their peers and explore their world through fun, friendship, challenges and adventures."
