1st Great Somerford Brownies meet in Goss Croft Hall, the new community hall for Seagry, Startly and Great Somerford.
Brownies is for girls aged 7 to 10 years and offers girls the chance to learn more about themselves, their community and the world in a safe girl only environment. Brownies follow a programme called the Brownie adventure and earn a yearly badge for their participation.
Recent activities have included working towards the Brownie friend to animals badge where we explored such issues as endangered animals, camouflage and finished the badge by meeting a Guide dog puppy called Pax and he was so well behaved!
Last term the Brownies enjoyed a sleepover in Malmesbury combined with a visit to the Athelstan players pantomime.
We started the new year with an ‘After Christmas back to front ,upside down and backwards Party’ where the girls were greeted with a cheery ‘Goodbye it’s been lovely seeing you,’ and played backwards party games like musical chairs which started with a single chair that everyone tried to sit on and ended with a chair for everyone. Food was eaten under the table! and finally the girls were waved off with cries of ‘Hello lovely to see you’.
Following their meeting with Pax, the girls have decided they would like to sponsor a Guide dog puppy and to that end are busy making things to sell at a a pop-up craft stall on March 15th.
