Welcome to South Down Division

Division Commissioner Pennie Thomson

South Down covers the large villages of Hurstpierpoint, Hassocks, and Ditchling. 

There are three Rainbow units, five Brownie units, five Guide units and a Ranger unit.

As well as regular meetings in our halls, all our girls have the opportunity to get out and about in the
countryside, and as we are within travelling distance of the guiding centre Blackland Farm and most units go there for activities such as: abseiling, wall climbing, crate challenge and more. Some use the centre for sleep overs and camps.

Guides Brownies and Rainbows all enjoy campfires, wide games and cookouts among other things.

All girls in our Guide units are offered the chance to go to camp this summer – the high light of the guiding year for many.



All units are run by volunteers and we always need more help to be able to offer more great opportunities to the girls and young women in our division.

If you live in one of our districts and you or your daughter would like to join us, please register her/yourself on our main girlguiding website https://www.girlguiding.org.uk/get-involved/ or email us: ccgirlguidingsussexcentral@gmail.com
