In April 1959 the 1st Ajana Girl Guide Company was formed with Jessie May Sutherland as Captain. Because of distance, the functions of the local association were undertaken by the Ajana Branch of the Country Women’s Association and instead of the usual weekly meetings, Guides and Brownies met in the Binnu or Ajana halls, the Golf Club or out of doors, before or after church services, or while their parents played golf or tennis. The 1st Ajana Girl Guide Company ceased to operate in 1976 and the 1st Ajana Brownie Pack in 1979.
