Avril Stouse – Guide and author

Avril Stouse (nee Maynard) was a Guide and member of the Sunday School at Wesley Hall from 1953 – 1959.

Avril has been involved in Guiding to this day and has written about her Guiding experiences in a book From Sprites to Dark Horses. See the book flyer here.

Avril has kindly given us permission to include a chapter from the book which describes her early Guiding at Wesley Hall – it makes fascinating reading. Click here.

She has sent us two pictures too:
