Preston South East

Division President – Mrs. Linda Tennant
Division Commissioner – Mrs. Pauline Elton

Euxton & Eccleston – Gill Steele
Hoghton – Miss. Julie Wilson
Leyland West – Mrs. Sylvia Fisher
Leyland & Whittle – Margaret Atkinson

Preston South East Division centres on the South Ribble area of Preston with the town of Leyland at the heart and the surrounding villages of Brindle, Euxton, Eccleston, Whittle, Buckshaw and Hoghton forming the Division.

There are 14 Rainbow Units, 21 Brownie Units, 9 Guide Units and 2 Senior Section Units in the Division. Our members range from 5 to 65 years old and our aim is to help girls and young women to fulfil their full potential and take an active and responsible role in society, through a stimulating and enjoyable programme delivered by trained volunteers assisted by Young Leaders and Unit Helpers.

We offer many exciting opportunities for our members including residential events both indoors and under canvas. We are supported in our aims by the Division Trefoil Guild, who are former Guiders and friends of Girlguiding.

We actively support the local community. We hold an annual Division Thinking Day Service inviting local dignitaries, including the High Sheriff, local MPs, Mayors, Councillors, Guiding Ambassadors and friends to come together to celebrate World Guiding and share our achievements.

A warm welcome awaits any new member.
