🌳 🌼 🦋 1st Bishopton Brownie leader Emma has noticed her girls meeting outside again has not only had a positive impact on her girls but on her community too… "It's clear to see the positive impact meeting outside again has had on the girls' mental health as there's been lots of laughter and chatter. Even locals have commented on how nice it has been to see the girls out and about again, so out good vibes are having a knock-on effect on the community!"

To celebrate this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week #ConnectWithNature theme, comment below if you’ve started outdoor guiding again and tell us how it’s going!
