Linda Oliver

Assistant county commissioner

How long have you been in Girlguiding?

I started brownies aged 7 and went onto Guides and was a young leader until I went away to university and then when I came back I was a guide leader for a few years. I came back into guiding when my eldest daughter was 5 and the Rainbow unit needed a leader and have been there 28 years.

Are there any stand out moments/any proud achievements?

Two standout moments – firstly going on my first International trip to Switzerland in 2019 with a group of guides and Rangers and remaking my promise at Our Chalet and secondly receiving the Bedfordshire brooch at the recent Valuing our Volunteers event.
