Who doesn’t love unicorns? Our Brownies certainly do. And they love making things and doing arts and crafts. That’s why we now have a selection of these little beauties drying in the cupboard. In other news, Guides playing the Girlguiding edition of Monopoly can spark interesting conversations about Guiding properties, in particular ones we might like to visit… I see a trip to London in … Continue reading Unicorns!
At the end of the summer term, I took my Brownies to Crazy Climb. We had a few spare places so we offered them out to the other unit – and this term they returned the favour. So I got to go Crazy Climbing again. Twice, because I stayed for Guides too. Excellent fun! Continue reading Crazy Climb Again!
Which means we held our annual Christmas Bazaar! We had Santa: Played very ably by one of the Scout leaders, because the real Santa is too busy at this time of year to help us out.

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
Over half term, I spent a couple of days with the Guides at PGL. For those who don’t know it, PGL is a chain of activity centres – climbing, archery, raft building, that sort of thing. 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
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
