County Commissioner Handbook

Large-scale day events

Large-scale events provide a great opportunity for girls to experience adventure. They can create a chance for the entire County to come together and for different Counties or organisations to collaborate.

A large-scale event is defined by Girlguiding as any event which has 100 or more participants, ranging from one-day events to events that last for several nights.

As a Commissioner, you are responsible for giving approval for a large-scale event to go ahead, and for appointing and supporting an Event Coordinator. These guidance notes will help you with these processes.
