Volunteer Profile - Maggie Barty

What do you do?


I am a volunteer at the 1st Muirhead Brownies and Guides, I’ve been helping there since 2023.

Why do you do it?


I first got involved because my granddaughters are at the 1st Muirhead groups and I knew they needed helpers.  I was keen to volunteer because I used to be a Guide leader many years ago before I had children and I enjoyed it very much.  Looking back, I wish I had never given it up!


What do you get out of it?


It is very satisfying to be able to help young people develop into the best they can be.  I also get lots of fun out of learning new skills along with the girls and I love camping and the outdoors (even in the bad weather).  Because I have been retired for many years, I feel I have a new lease of life being involved with the Guides and am fitter and healthier in mind and body.


What is your day job?

I am a retired Clerical Officer.  I worked in the paediatric department in a large hospital.  My day job nowadays is between leisure and being a granny.
