Rainbows is a wonderful opportunity to introduce girls to Girl Guiding and hopefully our group offers the girls everything we can to encourage them to continue to Brownies, Guides, Rangers, Young Leaders and then the next guiders of their generation.
1st Weare Brownies
First Weare Guides meet at Weare School on Monday evenings from 6.30 - 8pm. The joining age is 10, guides stay with the unit for four years, achieving yearly challenge badges - the older guides are encouraged to achieve their Baden Powell Challenge Badge before going on to Rangers.
All Guides whatever age work together in small groups and are enouraged to think for themselves and make their own decisions. They have a balanced and varied programme, caring for the individual and share a commitment to a common standard.
Within this framework the girls are given opportunities to have fun, learn new skills, interact with others, and undertake exciting and challenging activities.
Cubs and Scouts
Progressive Supper - A progressive supper is held in the Spring and Autumn. It is essential to let the organisers know that you would like to be involved, and you should be prepared to host one course for up to 6 people. They are great fun, and everyone meets up at the end of the evening for coffee and drinks. Watch the News and Events page for the next date.
Men's Breakfast - The men’s breakfast club meet quarterly, normally in Biddisham Hall, commencing at 8.45am on a Saturday morning.
We enjoy a full English breakfast and afterwards are entertained and even educated by a visiting speaker. The meeting is open to all men in the area around Weare. (We have men from all parts of the Crook Peak Parish and some from Axbridge, Cheddar and Burnham.)
There is no fixed charge but a basket is left by the door. Average attendance is 25 and rising. A good time of fellowship is enjoyed by all.

Women's Institute - the WI has recently been suspended, due to the small number of members. It is held 'in suspension' for 3 years, during which time it can be resuscitated should anyone wish to do so.
