Division Commissioner – Sophie Hurden
Abingdon Division is a busy end enthusiastic Division, divided into four Districts (Abingdon Abbey, Prospect, Thames and Northcourt).
We cover Abingdon town itself, as well as surrounding villages such as Appleton, Kingston Bagpuize, Kennington, Radley, Southmoor, Marcham, Drayton, Steventon and Sutton Courtenay. With 42 active units covering Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Senior Section, we offer Girlguiding to over 650 girls.
We enjoy coming together whenever we can – recent events include Division camp for all guides and senior section, a Rainbow and Brownie activity day, international trips abroad, training days and leader’s social events.
None of this would be possible without the support and dedication of our volunteers. We have over 140 adults who all offer their time to support Guiding in the Division in a whole variety of ways – be it running weekly meetings, helping at events or supporting units with administration etc. There is always room for one more, so if you’ve thought of volunteering, why not get in touch.
