Since the lockdown we have been unable to have our usual Brownie meetings in the church hall. However, we have been staying in touch, enjoying our fortnightly Zoom sessions. We have some exciting Zoom sessions planned including an evening with Owls and other birds of prey.
Beekeeping Zoom Meeting
We enjoyed a fun Zoom meeting all about Beekeeping. Barn Owl told the Brownies all about bees and shared her experiences of Beekeeping. The girls were captivated and asked lots of interesting questions about bees. We are giving the Brownies Bee Bombs to plant in their own gardens to attract the bees and insects.

Brownie Zoom Meetings – meeting some real Owls and a falcon
Over the last few months we have been enjoying sharing our Zoom meetings with other brownies. This week we had an Owl man from Horus Birds of Prey take part in our meeting. He brought two Owls Rio and Flint and a Falcon along with him. It was a fascinating talk and the brownies had the opportunity to ask lots of interesting questions about the birds. Here are some photos of the night. If you want to find out more about Paul and his owls then click this link:- https://horusbirdsofprey.co.uk/our-team/
World Thinking Day 2021
This year’s theme was Peacebuilding. Some of the Brownies took part in the virtual Thinking Day celebrations where they made their own Dreamcatchers and made a den to sleep in overnight.
Here are some photos of a few of our Brownies taking part.
We held our first socially distanced enrollment in November. Proud parents and grandparents were there too.
Sefton Girlguiding organised an overnight camp. 1st Formby Brownies and Leaders took part in the overnight sleepover. Those taking part had to sleep somewhere that wasn’t their own bed. One very brave leader slept in her bath.
We are looking forward to getting back to Brownies again when restrictions are lifted. We miss being together as a group and we have lots of exciting activities planned. But for now, we will enjoy meeting up on Zoom.
Parachute Games in the Church Hall
Come and join us either via Zoom or at a face to face meeting when we can get back together.
