Get everything you need for all sections of guiding from Guiding Essentials- our fantastic volunteer-run shop based at Girlguiding Leicestershire County Office. We keep a wide range of stock including uniforms, badges, books, gifts and more, and anything not available can easily be ordered.

 

Buying from us in the shop has many benefits. You can try uniform on and have a look at items before you buy, as well as getting the expert advice from our friendly volunteers and a chance to visit the magnificent County Office building. What’s more, all purchases directly benefit Girlguiding Leicestershire.   

For all enquiries, or to order items for collection, don’t hesitate to call us directly on (0116) 204 4902 during opening hours, alternatively you can e-mail us at equipstore@leicestershireguides.org
