Brownie Holiday at Easter

The three Brownie units in my area often go on holiday together, and this Easter was no exception. We had an indoor holiday - on an Easter theme, of course.  Mostly we were working on the Spring "Rik Bear" challenge.  Aren't they cute? The 24 Brownies we took all had a wonderful time, and considering... Continue Reading →


Look at this.  Not even four weeks in to the Year of the Volunteer challenge, and already I'm behind on blogging.  In my defence, it's because I've been very busy with Guiding things! At the start of April, my Guides and I went on a trip with some of our friends. A lot of our... Continue Reading →

More Japan

Kudos to BrownieGuideLeader for correctly identifying the temples.  After that, we went to Ise, to the grand shrine there, which is in a forest which has trees which are... Continue Reading →

But, to be fair, only because I make time.  On this occasion, I organised for another leader to cover my unit one week and I headed off into the wilds of Europe. I'm making that sound more dramatic than it... Continue Reading →

Bowling with Guides

We've got eight Guide units, and each one brought two or three teams, so you can imagine we pretty much packed the place out! Unfortunately our teams had a problem with the lane computer, so we were a... Continue Reading →

Guide Holiday Badge Work

Our Brownie holiday was not the end of the fun at February half term. Now that there is a very large overlap between the Brownie leaders and the Guide leaders, we're doing a lot of things almost-together. So, about three hours after the Brownies left, the Guides arrived. Same location, different girls. The fresh, Guide-only... Continue Reading →
