1st Chipperfield Brownie Pack
Since the beginning of the year we have welcomed five new Brownies: Kirsty Inglis, Elinor Rootes, Andrea Inglis, Sophie Exton and Hannah Martin. Sadly, we said goodbye to Samantha Cotterell, Bryony Compton, Isabel Harvey, Danielle Johnson, Alice Margrave and Sophie Dicker.
Here are just a few things the girls have enjoyed this year:
The Brownies all worked hard to achieve their World Cultures badge. This involved listening to a story from Spain, learning a dance from Holland, making a “Danish Heart” and making and eating Scandinavian open sandwiches. To complete their badge, the girls all brought a foreign costume to wear. It was great fun!
Our Pack joined in a special Millennium Celebration Day at Phasels Wood Scout Camp, Kings Langley. The whole division attended this day (Berkhamsted, Bovingdon, Hemel Hempstead, Tring, Kings Langley, and Abbots Langley) so it was a major event with lots of activities which was very enjoyable.
We enjoyed our annual Teddy Bears Picnic and games on The Common. No Brownies or adults were allowed to take part without a teddy bear!
The Brownies attended Village Day and did a wonderful job helping on the Horticultural Societys plant stall. Some members of the Society commented on how helpful the girls were and that they were very grown up. I was very proud of them.
We also enjoyed an evening of “make your own fruit salad”. I bought a lot of fruit for the children and amazingly, it was all eaten! All the girls are now expert at peeling and chopping fruit, so parents, dont forget to ask them to help you at home!
We ended the term with a joint barbeque with Langleybury Brownies at Phasels Wood Scout Camp. This included various parachute games, enrolments, a raffle and singing. A fantastic time was had by all. The evening included presentations to the winners of the Super Brownie of the Year competition. In third place was Rebecca Nicholson (who won a notebook and pencil), in second place was Amy Martin (who won a Brownie mug) and the winner was Lizzie Melhuish (who won a trophy engraved with “Super Brownie 2000). Well done girls!
I hope this report has given you an idea of what we do at Brownies and if you would like to put your daughters name on our waiting list, its never too early. The starting age is seven years old. Please contact me for more details on 01923 268852.
