The last few months have been tough on all of us and I want to say a personal thank you for everything you’ve done.
Your hard work has enabled us to build some resilience into our membership, which will be an important strength as we move through the second half of 2020. And, although we continue to face many unknowns about the virus and new challenges it could present, we should find confidence in the fact that Girlguiding Leeds is here to stay!
Central to our success in Leeds has been the digital innovation that we have seen in our units, with many of the County executive believing that it will be increasingly important after the COVID-19 crisis in ensuring that both girls and our volunteers are able to stay involved. I believe that a blended approach may be adopted by more units – especially in winter months.
To enable our COVID-19 recovery, the County Commissioner team have recognised the need to take a fresh look at where we stand based on all we’ve achieved and endured in the last few months.
With this in mind, we will be spending some time reviewing and reprioritising our strategy, identifying a few areas that we think will bring most benefit.We’ll be sharing more about our “Build Back Better” plan over the coming weeks. But for now, I want to thank you for the effort you’ve made so far this year and ask for your continued energy and passion as we look to build a bigger, better, more successful future for Girlguiding Leeds.
