Girlguiding North East England is holding its annual autumn walking weekend in Northumberland and you are welcome to join us!

Cheviot View is on the northern edge of the beautiful Cheviot Hills.  The recently rebuilt Cheviot View is a fantastic base for this weekend with many walks and areas for the walking weekend. You can even make it to Scotland in the day.

The weekend is for any adult member and their partners or friends that are ready to start their journey on the path to achieving a level 2 Girlguiding walking qualification. If you would like to take your girls into areas that are beyond the local park this is the qualification for you. You do not need to have a level 1 walking qualification to do this but some basic map skills would be an advantage.

The price of the weekend includes 2 nights accommodation indoors at Cheviot View and all meals from Friday evening to Sunday lunchtime. Transport to and from the event is not included but lifts to/from Wooler (there is a good train service to Berwick and bus to Wooler) can be arranged upon request. Please contact the NEE office if you would like to arrange this.

If you would like to do the level 2 training, you will need to supply your own:

  • Copy of the Girlguiding Walking Scheme booklet, downloadable from Girlguiding Trading
  • OS map, number OL16 Cheviot Hills (with map case or waterproofing)
  • Compass (e.g. Silva Expedition 4 Compass would be ideal, otherwise this must have 360o on it)
  • Torch suitable for finding the way in the dark (e.g. Petzl Tikkina)

Don’t forget your 20% GGUK discount in Cotswold and 10% in Go Outdoors.

Bursaries are available from Girlguiding North East England and details can be found here.
