Guiding seems to have a custom of major programme change for all sections every 50 years - for after the major changes of 1966-1968 when the original Tenderfoot/Second Class/First Class was replaced by the 8-point programme for all sections, so in 2016-18 we have programme changes for all sections again, and as in 1968 there will be a structure running through the programmes of all the sections, with the aim of providing continuity and progression.
Programme change also opens up opportunities for collectors and historians. Now is the time for people to collect material relating to Rainbow Rounbouts, Brownie Adventure Badges, Guide Challenge Badges and Senior Section Octants, whilst it is available for collecting. In a few years time some of it may be hard to come by . . .
