Friends of Foxlease is under the same Charity number as Girlguiding and due to the decision to close the centres Friends of Foxlease also ceases to be operational from 31st December 2023. If you would like more information on this decision, please contact Girlguiding UK.

Join Us

Our Friends are made up of Girlguiding leaders, Trefoil members, supporters and volunteers, all of whom have enjoyed visits to Foxlease and want to contribute to it remaining viable for many years to come. We would love you to join us as there is so much to share and enjoy, and to help preserve, to ensure Foxlease’s future.

Friends (and their family and friends) are welcome at Foxlease for mid-week leisure breaks and to receive Friends newsletters and Foxlease Matters newsletters.

You can become a Friend for as little as £5 a year (individual membership) for an annual subscription, or £10 a year (Trefoil Guild and Group) or why not ask us about becoming a Life Member?
