The club aims to provide collectors of Guide and Girl Scout badges with news and information about their hobby.
A newsletter is published six times a year, at the beginning of each even numbered month, starting with the first issue of the year in February.
The newsletter contains articles about badges, including heraldic information and histories of the badges, collecting news and views as well as lists of all sorts of badges.
Information about badges from a wide variety of countries feature in the newsletters and this hopefully encourages more people to widen their collecting interests.
News about the Guiding / Girl Scouting activities of members and events is published, as well as swaps and wants and sales lists. Also, information about members collecting interests is included. The latter do not change as frequently as do swaps and wants!
Features have included articles and lists about UK Guide Standard and
County badges, as well as articles and illustrations of badges from a variety
Members will always be encouraged to send in articles and information about badges and several guest writers will hopefully also contribute to the newsletter.
