Just wish the web had been around when I was a leader at Winston Hills. It would have made communication so much easier. Think you site is awesome. Love the photos illustrating all your activities. Keep up the good work.

What a blast from the past! I clicked on your 'Celestial Stars' page and there was the funny little star I designed for the unit back when I was 13 or 14... which was 13 or 14 years ago! Wow, you're still using it? Haha, I feel that I have left my mark on the world of guiding now ;) Keep having fun gorgeous girls x

Boy how things have changed. I was a guide with 1st Winston Hills and flicked over to 2nd Winston Hills where I became a junior leader. Boy - curtains in the hall, different coloured scarfs and a ramp outside the hall. What a difference a few years can make. I was junior leader there from 90-91 roughly and had a lot great fun. I'm told my name in is on a plaque in the hall by my Dad and step brother and sister - it them ages to get that up. I don't know what happened to the other leaders or junior leaders - Jane Sinclair, Kelly Lovely, Sam and Simone Bartholem! eus, Pip Lovely, Robin, Mrs Bourke. All good fun. Great guestbook - hope you find some other long lost guiding souls. Strangely enough my husband is an ex Sea Scout from West Pymble and both my step brother and sister are involved in the scouts and venturers now. All the best, Lorraine O'Keeffe Junior Leader 2nd Winston Hills Girl Guides

Your website has been very helpful and I am sure the girls would love to learn more. If you have anyone interested in being an email or traditional pen pal please let me know.
