We were delighted to welcome our Brownies and Rainbows back to our Thursday night sessions after the long summer break. This term, Brownies are going to be working on ‘Making a Difference’ by supporting charities. The main charity we will be supporting this term is NK Play and the girls have lots of ideas about how they can raise much needed funds to improve the Nether Kellet playground. We have some fantastic ideas and will be sharing these with you soon (keep an eye out for our promotional video and song in the next few weeks!). The girls have also been bringing in pyjamas for the wonderful ‘Children’s Hospital Pyjamas’ charity which you can read about elsewhere in this edition.

We have decided this term to divide the Brownies into ‘Sixes’ (Leprechauns, Pixies and Sprites) with each six developing independent skills and having the opportunity for some friendly competition! We announced the roles of ‘Sixers’ (Lily, Rose and Aoife) and ‘Seconders’ (Autumn, Emme and Juliet) and we are sure that there will be lots of fun to be had! Rainbows had followed suit and we now have the ‘Unicorns’ and ‘Mermaids’!

We are also looking forward to taking the Brownies to a special ‘Viking Day’ at Silver Sapling campsite in October and will have lots to share about this in the next edition of Round and About!
