Trefoil Guild

A wonderful opportunity to meet like-minded people and to share your next adventure - whatever that might be!

In Trefoil Guild, women and men aged 18+ make new friends, travel, explore, serve their communities and help Guiding (and Scouting) thrive across the UK!

Whether you're involved in Guiding or not, Trefoil Guild is a wonderful opportunity to meet like-minded people to share your next adventure - whatever that might be!

Cornwall Trefoil Guild

In Cornwall we currently have 14 Guilds spread around the County from North Cornwall to Saltash to Penwith and other places in between. We are hoping that in 2020 we will open some new Guilds focusing on younger members. Each Guild is unique, decides where and when they meet and chooses their own programme based around our 4 aims:

* To find Friendship 

* Get Active 

* Get Involved

* To Give Support


There are optional Challenges to attempt either as an individual or as part of your Guild, and there are overseas opportunities to discover if that is where your interest lies. Programmes vary from close to home with local outings and giving support to the community, volunteering and fundraising, or holidays and ventures abroad.

So, if you are a group of friends or just you, if you have never been involved before, or even if you still are, whatever your age, gender or religion and like the idea of being part of Girlguiding, and doing the fun things you enjoy or would like to try, either together with your peer group or in a mixed group, then please get in touch. A warm welcome is guaranteed!

Trefoil Guilds in Cornwall

The Trefoil Stars Challenge

All our members are STARS and now they can gain a badge to prove it!













Voyage Awards


Thanks Award






The themes and challenges within STARS encompass the four key messages of Trefoil, to Find Friendship, Get Active, Give Support, and Get Involved.

There are five points to our Trefoil STARS and each point concentrates on a different theme, based around the five letters of the word STARS. SKILLS, TOGETHER, ACTION, ROAM AND SELF. Each theme has eight clauses, but to complete the badge you only need to choose five.

A cloth badge is achieved for each letter completed and a metal badge available when all five themes have been finished. They can be undertaken in guild meetings with other members, in smaller groups or individually. The choice is yours. Find out more by clicking the button below.

If you should wish to challenge yourself on a more personal level and on a wider scope, why not try the Trefoil Guild’s Voyage Award? Any member can take part.

There are three levels to this award, Bronze, Silver and Gold. They take longer and are progressively more difficult, but still have five sections for each Award level. You will need to choose one activity or challenge from each of the following sections, Service, Myself, Teamwork, Skills and Explore My World. Both a cloth and metal badge are awarded on achieving each level.

A new Thanks Brooch, designed in 2020 by members and made by a local jewellery company is our way of saying a special “Thank You” to those members and non-members who have helped Cornwall Trefoil in exceptional ways over time. 20 were awarded in the first year and we look forward to presenting more each year.
