Everyone is welcome at the reunion tea-party. We are particularly keen to make contact with former members of the units – please get in touch – we’d love to hear your memories …!
7th SC Brownies in Trinity South recently took part in Parliament Week. They invited their deputy mayor to come along and chat about why it is so important to vote. They made Big Ben Biscuits and formed their own parliament for the evening. On hearing of this success, their own MP, Andrew Mitchell invited them to London to meet him at the Houses of Parliament where they all had a fabulous time. He then awarded them their Parliament Week badges in person!
175th Birmingham (St Mary’s) Brownies went gardening last week at Alexandra House Care Home in Olton. They spent a wonderful time forging links with the older community there and brightening up everyone’s’ lives with some colourful flowers and lots of noisy chatter!
World Thinking Day 2019: Leadership
Every year on 22 February, we celebrate World Thinking Day. We’re part of a bigger movement – the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) – and World Thinking Day is a chance for us to connect with 10 million Girl Guides and Scouts across the globe. And to shout about the amazing things we do.
The theme for 2019 is leadership. For over 100 years we’ve helped girls to lead the way, putting them at the forefront of everything we do. Whether it’s our new programme, our campaigns on issues that matter to girls and young women, or our research into their lives today; World Thinking Day is a chance for us to celebrate our girl-led movement.
