Plaistow Guides may be forced to close if they are unable to find a new adult leader.

Teri Maher has been a leader with Girlguiding for more than 24 years and has been running Plaistow Guides sunce 2001, but feels it is time for someone younger to take over.

There are 22 Guides currently in the unit and there is a long waiting list of girls waiting to join when they are ten years old, but the other local unit in Billingshurst is full.

Emma, 13, a Guide in the unit, said: “It would be really sad if Guides had to stop after camp.”

Anyone interested in volunteering to become the new leader should register their interest at or call 0800 169 5901.
