Girl guiding members celebrate Big Brownie Birthday by doing a massive conga round Booth’s

Girl guiding members celebrate Big Brownie Birthday by doing a massive conga round Booth’s – raising over £70 for CRO

2014 marks the centenary of the Brownies and as part of the Big Brownie Birthday celebrations, young members of all ages in the Settle area are holding a family evening on 2 July. The girls will enjoy a barbecue and rounders at the school. But the climax of the evening will be a great Conga round the aisles of Booth’s Supermarket.


Guides, Brownies and Rainbows will all have great fun, but with a serious purpose. They are raising money for the Clapham based Cave Rescue Organisation, a voluntary organization which performs local fell rescues as well as cave rescue. Brownies from the new unit in Settle are particularly keen to support the charity – their Leader’s husband is a CRO volunteer!


Taking part will also go towards the Community section of the Big Brownie Birthday badge, which the girls are working on this year as part of the Brownie Centenary celebrations. It’s a great way to round off the summer term and a good example of the variety of activity offered in the guiding programme.


Girlguiding Skipton and Settle Division welcomes new members of all ages and would love to involve some new adult volunteers. Leaders are needed across the area, but particularly in Long Preston where the Leader is standing down after many years. If you have ever enjoyed time as a Rainbow, Brownie or Guide – or if you would like to make it possible for your own or your friends’ children to enjoy the fun and friendship these organisations offer, then please consider volunteering. You will be given full training and work alongside other Leaders so that our local groups can truly be open to all. To find out more please have a look on our website www.girlguiding.org.uk/interested or call 0800 169 5901.
