Gill shares her final message and some memories too

Next month, Gill Slocombe will pass the Chief Guide title onto Valerie Le Vaillant, who will be leading Girlguiding through the rest of its 'Being our best' plan and beyond.

With hundreds of events - and three 100-year celebrations! - behind her, we think Gill has more than earned a break and want to say a huge thank you from everyone at Girlguiding for her passion, commitment and energy over the last five years.

'What an absolute pleasure it has been'

Watch Gill's message to members now, and remember some of her best guiding moments in this video.

Share your favourite memories with Gill and Angela

We want to celebrate all that Gill, and her deputy Angela Milln, have done for Girlguiding – and we need the help of the many members they've inspired.

Look out for lots more on our new Chief Guide on the blog, and in our member newsletters, next month.

Welcome Chief Guide Valerie

Tweet Valerie and let her know what you hope to see during the next five years in guiding.
