Kate Ridgeon – HornchurchDivision Commissioners
I am Kate Ridgeon and am the Division Commissioner for Hornchurch. I was introduced to guiding at the age of two, as my Mum became a leader at the time my elder sister became a brownie and she didn’t have a babysitter. I went with them to meetings each week. I really meant it when I say I don’t remember life without brownies! I had to wait until I was seven before I could become a brownie myself. I moved through the roles of guide and young leader before becoming a unit leader. I became the unit leader of brownies over 25 years ago as my Mum retired. I have also held a number of roles at District and now Division level.
