Waddow is an old Manor House set in 178 acres, built on the banks of the River Ribble and is owned by Girlguiding.

If you have never been before, you need to come and soak up the very special atmosphere, wonderful food, fabulous surroundings and of course, great company.

What you’ll get:

  • New ideas to reinvigorate your unit meetings and help on running hybrid virtual/face-to face meetings, lead by the team of trainers
  • The chance to meet other leaders and the county team, share experiences, get support and advice, be inspired and rediscover your love of guiding
  • All meals provided from Friday evening until Sunday lunchtime
  • Accommodation in the main hall in shared rooms (numbers per room will depend on Covid guidance at time of event)
  • Saturday afternoon drop in opportunities/free time to explore the Hall and grounds.

Waddow charges £99 per person for a training weekend. However, we firmly believe in supporting our volunteers, so County is subsidising the cost as follows:
£40 For people who are attending a training at Waddow for the FIRST TIME and actively volunteer with a unit (e.g. leader, assistant leader, young leader aged 16+ or regular unit
helper). To take advantage of this offer application form & payment must be received by 20th November.

The first 10 applications received, that meet the above criteria, will receive a grant from Waddow towards the cost. Please enclose a cheque for £40, when you book or let us know if
you have paid by BACS. If you are within the first 10 you will be notified and your cheque will be destroyed or you will receive a refund for your BACS payment.
£50 Early booking deal for members who have been to Waddow before. To take advantage of this offer application form & payment must be received by 20th November.
£60 The cost for ALL applications received from 21st November onwards.
Don’t forget, the cost of the weekend training is a justifiable unit expense.

If you cancel or fail to attend and the place cannot be filled, then the full cost of £99 will be charged, as we will be charged by Waddow Hall.
Places are limited so please book ASAP to avoid disappointment.
