Glynis Mackie, guide leader at the 37th Newcastle Guide Unit, said:
A Newcastle-based girl guide group who were told they would be expelled if they failed to remove God from their oath have won their fight to remain part of the Girl Guides organisation.
The 37th Newcastle Guide Unit at Jesmond Parish Church received a letter from Girl Guiding's chief commissioner in the North East informing them their membership would end if they did not start using a new oath which has no mention of religion.
But the group have now been informed the threat has been lifted.
