Girlguiding Anglia

The Hautbois estate was bequeathed to Girlguiding Anglia in 1984 by the Patteson sisters, Philippa and Beth, who devoted their lives to guiding in Norfolk. This gift has benefited the hundreds of guests who visit each year and experience the delights of Hautbois. Girlguiding Anglia is one of the nine countries and regions of Girlguiding, the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK. Visit the Girlguiding Anglia website to find out more about what happens in guiding within the Anglia Region and how to join.
