Rainbow (Girl Guides)

Uniform

Tabards used to be and can still be worn, as part of the uniform. They are now however not as popular as they once were. The uniform, which is currently worn, came in 2004. Only colours of tabards available to buy now are Purple and Red.Colours of Tabards were: Orange, Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple. Units could choose which colour they wanted, but it made sense to all wear the same.In the UK Rainbows started in 1987.

The Jigsaw

Rainbows meet approximately once a week during termtime, with some appropriate day trips. They will normally complete two Roundabouts during their time at Rainbows, comprising of Laugh, Learn, Look, and Love sections.Scouting Sections
