Future of guide unit hangs in balance
Guide unit could close if a new leader is not found
A POPULAR guide group could close if members cannot find a new leader.
Members of 5th Nailsea Guides are desperately appealing for a new leader to come forward to save their group.
The unit has been running for 100 years, but the current leader has had to stand down and despite numerous appeals a replacement has still not been found.
Guide Olivia Morgan said: “After a few months of searching, no one has offered their time and commitment towards guides.

“We are a helpful and enthusiastic group of about 17 girls aged from 10 to 13 who would really appreciate someone to support us with their time to become a guider.
“It would involve an hour a week planning and an hour-and-a-half meeting with the guides every Monday evening.”
