Our special centenary picnic for members of the public. If you can't travel to Foxlease, why not join the celebrations at our other activity centres around the country?
18 September 2022 Free event Blackland FarmFoxleaseWaddow Hall

Join with guiding members and the wider community in a picnic to celebrate Foxlease’s 100th birthday.

Come and join the mass picnic in the beautiful grounds of Foxlease (New Forest), or explore the wonderful countryside at our other activity centres at Blackland Farm (West Sussex) and Waddow Hall (Lancashire). Don’t miss our separate celebration picnic happening at Glenbrook in the Peak District too.

And that’s not all! There’ll be a treasure hunt, giant games, adventurous activities, house tours and bunting making.

Bring your own picnic, or you can order your own picnic bag (not available at Blackland Farm) for a cost of £5pp (orders by 30 August).

Can’t make it to any of these locations? Why not hold your own picnic wherever you are and share your picnic with us on social media at #Foxlease100.

If you’re another activity centre and would like to host your own picnic to help celebrate 100 years of Foxlease, please email foxlease100@girlguiding.org.uk for more information. We’d love to hear from you!
