County Team

No matter how much time you have to give, there’s an opportunity for you.

Find your place in our team of inspirational women, sharing their skills and passions with girls in a local unit – all while benefiting from the adventure and opportunities guiding has to offer.


I am the County Commissioner for Middlesex North West, and responsible for Guiding in our local area, covering the London Boroughs of Hillingdon and Harrow. I also represent our County at Region and National level. I have grown up through Girlguiding and am a Guide Leader in Northwood District, for over 12 years.

Working in collaboration with the County Team, we organise local activities for young members and volunteers and provide opportunities for learning and development. We work to ensure that our volunteers feel valued and supported and have the skills and resources to undertake their roles within the County.

It would not be possible to do my volunteer role without the support of my two Assistant County Commissioners, Marian and Jade, along with the volunteers who make up County Executive and wider County Team.

I am very grateful to the whole team for taking on these additional roles alongside their
other Girlguiding roles and commitments.

Marian Brown and Jade Fardon
