Information for Parents

Join a Unit

Many of our units are very popular and have waiting lists so your daughter will not automatically be guaranteed a place. It is important to get her name down as early as you can!

To register your daughter to join a Rainbow, Brownie, Guide or Ranger unit in Epsom please visit https://www.girlguiding.org.uk/information-for-parents/register-your-daughter/

With so many girls waiting to join units not only in Epsom but throughout the UK we always welcome parents to come and help. The more volunteers we have, the more girls can join us and enjoy what we do. Find out more on our Volunteering page.

Cost

Girlguiding units charge subs to cover the cost of equipment, resources, annual subscription to be a member of Girlguiding and the hire of the meeting place. These are paid three times a year at the start of each term. Subs vary from area to area – your unit leader will be able to tell you how much the subs are and when they need to be paid.

There is usually an extra charge for special activities, days out, residential events and holidays.

Uniform

Your unit leader will tell you what uniform your daughter will need. This can be purchased from The Scout and Guide Shop in Stoneleigh:

22 The Broadway
Stoneleigh
KT17 2HU

Tel:  020 8001 6856

Email: epsomandewellscoutshop@aol.com

The shop is open at the following times:

Monday 2-5pm
Wednesday 2-7pm
Saturday 9.30-12noon

Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a government scheme to encourage people to give to charity. Under the scheme, money given to charities is eligible for tax relief. Please ask your unit leader for a gift aid form if you pay UK tax as your daughter’s unit will benefit enormously at no extra cost to yourself.
