It is often said that to look back is to inform looking forward. Girlguiding Bristol and South Gloucestershire is very fortunate to have an excellent collection of archives which is currently stored across two storage areas. A very knowledgeable and experienced team is currently sorting through the collection to catalogue it and then, hopefully, make it available for research, traditions badges, exhibitions and other requests.
Archives need to be original and scrapbooks and photo albums with un-named content are not usually as useful as original letters, clearly labelled pictures of County events and records of inclusive minority activity as well as larger scale celebrations.
Be proud of Girlguiding Bristol and South Gloucestershire's heritage, and help it to be protected far into the future.
If you wish to borrow any items, please give as much notice as possible, ideally at least a month, to allow the team enough time sort out the items you would like to borrow. A donation is required each time items are borrowed. Donations will be used towards the cost of storing and maintaining the collection.
