The University of Lincoln will ‘be prepared’ for around 200 visitors this Saturday when the Lincolnshire South County Guide Association stages its annual review on campus.


Adult members, leaders and advisers from the association will be joined by the Mayor of Lincoln, Councillor Pat McGinlay, the Vice-Chairman of Lincolnshire County Council, Councillor Graham Wheat, and the High Sheriff of Lincolnshire, Gerald Makeham.


“The university is a very prestigious location for our annual review, which is being hosted this year by the Lincoln South Division of the association,” said Janette Abbott-Donnelly, County Commissioner for the Guide Association (Lincolnshire South County).


“We will be making the most of this excellent location. The university can give us everything that we need for our meeting, and the venue reflects our work in lifelong learning, which is what the university is all about.”


The annual meeting will take the form of an annual review delivered by members in the form of Powerpoint and video presentations.


The event will begin at 2.30pm in the Jackson Lecture Theatre at the university’s Brayford Pool campus.


The county association has over 6,000 members, 800 of whom are trained volunteer leaders aged 16 and over.
