Back at the start of term, we asked the Brownies to think of something they wanted to do that started with each letter of the alphabet. For G, they chose Golf. So this week we abandoned our normal meeting place and made our way to the Adventure Golf course in town. Adventure Golf is like Crazy Golf, with floors at interesting angles, tunnels that the … Continue reading Adventures Near and Far
This week at Unit 1 we painted the clay unicorns that we had made a few weeks ago. We had a few new Brownies start since then, so I had a fun weekend preparing for them. Unit 2, and my Guides, on the other hand, had a very quiet week. This was the view out of my front door on Friday morning: All the local … Continue reading Unicorns and Snow
In the Brownie Adventure book, there is an activity about who can help you with things. The activity as written is less exciting than it could be, so we adapted it slightly to make it more entertaining. The basic premise is, for each problem listed, decide who to call for help – should it be 999? We added some overly dramatic acting, including what the … Continue reading Who you gonna call?
Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Senior Section, together with members of our local Scout Group, joined together to commemorate the lives lost in the World Wars. They looked very impressive in their smartest uniforms, each unit with a flag. I wish I could show you a picture, but with so many people there from different units, I don’t know the photo permissions for them all! You’ll … Continue reading Remembrance 2017

This time, we took part in eight activities: giant swing, trapeze, zip wire, survival, crate stacking, fencing, climbing and aeroball. Here’s a random selection of photos for your enjoyment! … Continue reading PGL Holiday
It’s been a little while since I posted, and I’ve done a lot. We had a photo presentation evening to show the Guides and parents what we got up to in Switzerland. Not many parents came, but I think the Guides appreciated it. Our Brownie plan for one week was rained off, so I thought quickly and decided to teach the girls some self defence. … Continue reading A bit of a catch up
On Friday, two of my Guides ran the evening for me. They are working on their Baden-Powell Award, the highest award you can get as a Guide. One of the clauses they have chosen to do is “Organise and run a Patrol cooking competition. You could provide ingredients and challenge the Patrols to produce dishes in a set time.” They split the Guides into three … Continue reading Baden-Powell Cooking Evening
