Development of the Movement
The first Guide company in Saint Lucia was started in the capital, Castries, in 1925. In 1926 the Association was registered as a Branch Association of the Guide Association (UK). In 1984, the Association was accepted by WAGGGS as an Associate Member.
During the early years the headquarters moved several times until, in 1931, the Government gave the Association two rooms in the lodge at the botanical gardens in Castries. Building improvements began with a ceremony in 1964 during a visit from the World Chief Guide and work was completed in 1965.
In 1979 Saint Lucia became politically independent and in October 1983 the Guide Association (UK) signed a Deed of Transfer making the Girl Guides Association of Saint Lucia self-governing in all areas of work.
