Girlguiding UK, as part of a worldwide movement, enables girls and young women to fulfil their potential and to take an active and responsible role in society through its distinctive, stimulating and enjoyable programme of activities delivered by trained volunteer leaders. 

At Greenside we offer girls the chance to join:


Brownies (age 7 - 10)

What do Brownies do? Brownies have fun! They take part in indoor and outdoor activities that challenge them to do their best. Their meetings are action-packed and full of challenges, games and activities, usually ones that the Brownies have suggested themselves. For more information see the Brownies website at

Rainbows and Brownies leader:  Ms Gillian Fraser



Girl Guides (age 10 - 14)

Girl Guides meet weekly at Greenside. We always welcome new members.

In the past we have worked towards Go-For-Its and the Cooks badge. We have also been Ice Skating at Murrayfield, along with other games, crafts and weekly activities.

We also go camping in the Summer and meet other Guides from Edinburgh and the UK.
