  • Thank you to our Volunteers

    The 1-7 June is #VolunteersWeek..... so what better time to say thank you to all the amazing volunteers that make guiding happen in Harpenden? We're so grateful for every single one of our volunteers. You help give girls & young women amazing experiences - we really couldn't do it without you, so thank you ❤️💙.
