Elizabeth Higton, our very own Girlguiding Ayrshire North Vice President and leader of Upper Irvine Valley Senior Section, will finish her term as Chairman of the Scottish Trefoil at the end of June 2016, when Eileen Martin will take on the role.

Margaret Hamilton, ongoing Treasurer of the Scottish Trefoil and another Girlguiding Ayrshire North Vice President, had this to say:

“Elizabeth was a very hard working Chairman. She put a lot of effort into the role to develop Trefoil. She diligently travelled up and down the length of the country promoting Trefoil, visiting guilds and attending events. Her personality shone through and she was a great team builder including as many people as possible.”

Throughout Elizabeth’s 5 year term she achieved a lot for Scottish Trefoil. She brought new people into the executive, and developed the UK initiative ‘Focus on the Future’ in Scotland. She was also presented with the TG Brooch for outstanding service. Despite finishing her term, Elizabeth continues to be heavily involved in Girlguiding and is going to Russia in October with TOPAZ to work with girls and leaders in the Russian Association of Girl Scouts.

Congratulations Elizabeth on a fantastic term and for all that you do for Girlguiding.
