1st St. Peter’s Formby Brownie Pack
We are a full pack of 24 girls, as we have had a lot of new Brownies joining us from the Methodist Rainbow group.
We held our annual Thinking Day service in the Methodist Church in February and Reverend Anne was invited to conduct the service and to give the talk. She captivated her audience with the ‘magic’ jug pouring endless glasses of water into a bowl. The theme of the service was Peace and every girl; Rainbow, Brownie and Guide spent the previous weeks thinking of a prayer to write on a dove which was then pinned to a board on the altar steps. It was very moving to read the girls’ prayers, a great deal of thought had gone into them.
The Brownies have worked hard earning their Out and About Badge and Fire Safety badge, and they are presently working on the Seasons badge and the Stargazer badge. We are planning a trip to Jodrell Bank in the next few months.
One of our Leaders; Caroline McGarvey had a baby George in May. He even made it to the next Church Parade wearing his own necker.
Gemma, our young leader has also completed her Leadership Warrant, so she will be able to actively assist Caroline and Rachel and Jan in the running of the pack.
Gemma was presented with her Warrant at the Harvest Church Parade in October by the Division Commissioner Sheila Kirk.
We would like to thank St Peter’s and the Trustees for their continued support.
There is plenty of fun to be had at Brownies and Guides.
