10th Walkden Brownies (Christ the King)
10th Walkden Brownies meet every Wednesday evening (during term time) from 6.30-8pm in Scout Hut on Barnside Avenue, next to church.
We undertake many activities ranging from crafts, games, fund raising and badge work to trips out varying from theme parks to museums. Some meetings take place in the community i.e. Blackleach Country Park and we also take part in bag packing in local supermarkets. We also get involved district guiding events when we join up with other guiding groups in the area. The weekly meetings are varied and are a great opportunity for the girls to make new friends, learn new skills and earn activity badges.
Currently we are working towards the Disability Awareness badge and are arranging for a visitor to come and see us to teach the girls basic sign language and also for a volunteer from Guide dogs for the blind to come along with a puppy in training to explain what a wonderful job they do. We have a trip planned in July to Jodrell bank as the next badge we will complete as a unit is Stargazer. A Brownie holiday has also been arranged for later in the year.
The age range is 7 to 10/11 and all girls are welcome to join us. We always aim to make brownies educational without neglecting the fun element so if anyone is interested in joining please look at the girl guiding UK website and click the ‘join us’ link. Alternatively pop in on a Wednesday and meet the leaders Catherine (Brown Owl) and Liz (Barn Own).
