18 September 2022 Free event Blackland FarmFoxleaseGlenbrookWaddow Hall

Join with guiding members around the world 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), explore the wonderful countryside at our other activity centres at Blackland Farm (West Sussex), Glenbrook (Peak District) or Waddow Hall (Lancashire) – or hold your own picnic wherever you are.

Why not picnic in an unusual place, in a huge group, with your unit or with your friends and family?

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!
