Brownies

 

 

The 6th Hale (St Peters) Rainbow Unit continues to thrive. We meet every Wednesday during term times from 5.30-6.30pm in St Peter’s House. Rainbows is the youngest section of Girl Guiding, for girls aged 5 to 7. We currently have 18 girls from a mix of local schools on the roll and three leaders who alternate running the meetings.

 

We plan a very busy, varied programme of activities usually based around a half termly theme and include lots of sport, discussion and craft activities. We have visits from various local organisations to assist with the girl’s understanding of the world around them and the community they live in.

 

We are usually very busy with crafts too, making lots of seasonal giftsf or Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Easter and Christmas. We also try and bring in other cultures and have had meetings learning about Roshashanna (Jewish New Year), Divali and Chanukah.

 

We try to link with Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Senior Section taking part in a multitude of outdoor activities.

 

We are also always on the lookout for new leaders and young leaders, please call Karen Robinson 0161 975 6700 / 07714 458 124 or email karenrobinson@cullenfp.co.uk if you are interested or would like more information.

6th Hale Brownies (St Peter’s) meet at The Veranda Room in St Peter's House on Tuesdays and at St Peter’s Assembly Rooms on Wednesdays from 5.15pm till 6.45pm during school term time only.

The Brownies have a fantastic time doing craft, games and other activities. As a group we work towards our Brownie Skills of agility, hobbies and hostess badges as well as individuals achieving badges for music, swimming, horseriding and other activities.

We enjoyed workshops such as Tae Kwondo and Mr Jellybean, a professional juggler and balloon modeller back to teach us all circus skills.  We have joint meetings with the Guides for special occasions like Shrove Tuesday.  We commemorate Remembrance Sunday painting poppies and making a wreath to be displayed in church.

Girls join in additional activities such as making felt bags, newspaper dens, fruit salads as well as being very supportive to new Brownies taking their promises in the ceremonies we hold termly. We have annual Brownie camps - the last one was at Ashley for an Olympic themed Pack Holiday and even though the weather wasn’t brilliant we all had a great time doing lots of craft and holding our own Olympic games.
