1st Chipperfield Brownie Pack
1st Chipperfield Brownies have welcomed 9 new girls since September. We have enjoyed lots of fun-packed meetings/activities, including a night walk and learning to line dance. One of our parents joined us to do a keep-fit routine, thanks very much Charlie. We all had a great time. We ended the term with Christmas craft and a Christmas party, even Father Christmas visited us!
The new term saw us enjoying a star gazing evening, making pizzas and making Chines lanterns. The girls dressed in various costumes from around the world for our Thinking Day evening and we also had a 40’s night. We ended the term by making Mothers Day cards and had a Pack Holiday theme night to prepare for our biggest Brownie adventure in the Easter holiday.
The theme for our Pack Holiday was Beatrix Potter. Fifteeen eager Brownies arrived at Well End Scout Activity Centre on 2 April to join in lots of fun activities. The girls enjoyed a teddy bears picnic, making collages of various characters from Beatrix Potter, making Easter bonnets, campfire singing, a scavenger hunt and an Easter egg hunt. As well as these activities and more, the girls worked very hard to gain their cooks, home skills and Brownie holiday badges. It really was a great holiday, the girls were very well behaved and so polite and they all got on very well together. Everyone was very helpful but there could only be one Pack Holiday Super Brownie and that was Eve Portwin. Well done. I want to say a big thank you to my ‘team’ – Jo, Jerri, Gill and Helen. Also, well done to Jo for achieving her Catering Certificate during the holiday. I’m looking forward to the next one!
My pack is full to bursting at the moment, but if you would like to put your daughter on the waiting list (the starting age is 7) please phone Sian Roberts (Brown Owl) on 01442 261030 (daytime) or 07986 192313.
There are lots of girls in our District who would love to be part of Girlguiding (Rainbows 5-7, Brownies 7-10 and Guides 10-14) but due to insufficient leaders are unable to. If you would like a really rewarding experience, why not give a little time to Guiding? You can be a Guider from the age of 18 or a Young Leader between the age of 14-18. If you are interested please contact Jean Banks 01923 400370.
