Some recent activities:

We are sad to say, that after 11 years as a leader for Mitcheldean Brownies, Sue Christopher has decided it is time to call time. Sue has been a fab leader and mastermined or been involved in many extra activities. Obviously the Guiding Centenary with Golden and Gorgeous, Taking over the Tracks and Vision were major events but also many Pack Holidays (Deer Park, Cranham, PGL and Blackmore) and other events, for example, Holly Barn, Holiday on ice and @Bristol. She has given so much of her time and enthusiasm to a decade of girls and we are very grateful to her. We will miss her greatly.
Celebrate and Thank you, Sue.
We had a lovely trip down memory lane, evening for Sue on 18th October. A slide show showing photos from Sue making her Promise in 2001 through to July2012. The Brownies performed poems and mini plays to add to the picture memories and got very excited once they saw pictures of big sisters and other people they knew. There was, of course, cake and presents.

Pack Holiday 2012 - Blackmore, Worcs.
The rain stopped and the sun arrived, that could only mean one thing - Mitcheldean brownies were off to pack holiday. One of the girls said "It was better than PGL", well that is certainly high praise. Thank you.

Forest North Division, Jubilee celebration
was a huge success - "Awesome" was the term used by one of our older Brownies. Thank you Helen and the team for providing a great day out with a challenge trail of the badges the girls had designed, princess tiara's to make, horizontal climbing wall, cup cake decoration and loads of other things. We had a mass party lunch outside too, finishing with ice lollies for about 300 people.

Summer Term Activities
We worked on a special challenge called Cool Britannia. It focused on all sorts of things about Great Britain. There were flags to colour, quizzes (for example: cockney rhyming slang, the Royal family, Robert Burns), Scottish shortbread to make and so on.
We also updated our scrapbooks - started to record the exciting things we have done since the centenary of Guiding. The results are really good, do ask to see them if you are visiting us.
On our last evening of the term we held our own Wimbledon evening, girls arrived in their centre court gear, from different eras and we had our own Wimbledon Tennis competition, with strawberries and cream - of course.
We said goodbye to Paige and Natasha who where heading off to secondary school in September. Unfortunately they won't be able to go on to Guides because we don't have a Guide Leader to run Mitcheldean Guides. If you would like to 'Make a Difference' and get our Guide unit running again, please contact us soon. PRETTY PLEASE.
