    Officially you contact girlguidinguk and they will send you a local contact but I didn't have much success with that and ended up managing to get involved through an article in the local paper.

    If you let me know by pm which area of the country you're in I can probably find you a contact if you'd like me to though.

    Notebooks and pens - I don't know how but I've got loads of new and half used notebooks and pens, so might have to start a journal as has been previously suggested (thank you poster :T)

    Hello sallymander. I'm the same. I've got so many pens and as I declutter I find more.:rotfl::eek::rotfl::eek: At the mo I'm using a fountain pen and a extra fine roller ball.

    Hi yes I am, I'm doing ok with my blanket, just had a big sew on session, but these were some swaps I bought that are selling well on ebay so I thought I'd get rid of them straight away I hope!

    Having said that I sent off for a couple more yesterday...

    Any 'old' Guide related items seem to sell really well - I've sold all sorts of things so good luck!

    It's really easy!!

    If you contact your local council, they should have a list of local groups or a contact number and you just turn up!
    The Leaders there will give you all the info you need.
    Hope you enjoy it - I am leaving in July after 26 years (sadly due to ill health).
    Good luck x

    Hiya
    not been around for a while. Used up a few bits in the bathroom and have found out that I have about 7 months to declutter our flat before baby arrives!!!!

    I have dug out a few bits to list on ebay on Thurs and Fri when there is no insertion fee.

    Let the decluttering begin!!!!
