“Weekly meetings include helping the five to seven-year-olds learn new skills and participate in a variety of activities.

“Being an adult leader is very rewarding seeing the girls flourish from being shy and quiet girls to confident seven-year-olds. Do you have what it takes to help our Rainbows flourish?”

The new leader must be aged 18 or over and a DBS background check will be paid for by Girlguiding.

Rainbow units provides a fun and exciting programme for girls.

It is all about learning through doing including sports, arts and crafts, and playing games.

Girlguiding said: “Rainbows learn and grow through a programme of age-appropriate activities, trips and adventures both in their weekly meetings and at special events.

“They are supported by a group of highly-trained, inspirational leaders to try new things, challenge themselves and have fun.”
