The Brownies have been very busy with a variety of activities at our Tuesday meetings in the Church Hall and at other times and places.  At the end of October, we held a Hallowe’en party with traditional games and great costumes.
The Brownies were pleased that they could be part of the Church Service for Remembrance Sunday. They were happy the flags could be paraded again, after a break due to Covid restrictions.
After one of the Brownies suggested making Reindeer food to raise funds for a charity, the girls put it into bags and sold them. They voted to donate the £78 raised to Dumfries and Galloway Canine Rescue.
In December, Reverend Johannes came along with us to Lochduhar where we sang some Christmas carols and songs to the residents and gave them 85 Christmas crackers that we had made. We walked back and decorated the Christmas tree in the Church Hall before we went home.
We had a visit to the Theatre Royal and enjoyed seeing the pantomime, ‘Rapunzel’ and eating ice cream at the interval. Girlguiding arranged for us to see ‘Matilda the Musical’ at Loreburn Hall. Popcorn and juice were provided!
At the last meeting, before the Christmas holidays, parents joined us to enjoy the Christmas carols and to see Summer being presented with the Brooke Award and the Kelpies being made the Six of the Term.
2023 has seen us starting to work on the ‘Skills Builder, Make Change’ which is part of our ‘Take Action’ theme.
We have been thinking about opinions and how people may have different opinions to your own.
A special Promise Celebration was held for Izzy, supported by the other new girls who renewed the Promises they
had made just before Christmas. The hall was lit with tea lights that we had borrowed, creating a special atmosphere.
Learning about Chinese New Year and its traditions led to the making of origami rabbits.
We are looking forward to welcoming some new Brownies in the Spring and happy to receive enquiries from others.
