The 2nd Ellesmere Brownies were treated to a fun-filled weekend with loads of enjoyable activities in and around the Lyneal Guide Centre. The brownies arrived at Lyneal Guide Centre where they settled in and later went on a torch walk to The Lazy Cow Cafe. The girls enjoyed a lovely dinner before taking part in an array of activities such as feeding the ponies, gently handing little chicks and dissecting owl pellets. The fun continued as they walked back to the Lyneal Guide Centre using their torchlight to find their way. At the Lyneal Guide Centre, the brownies made conker wreaths, aborigine painting, made up dress-up plays and much more creative activities. Their second day at the Guide Centre was no different from their arrival day. On their second day, the girls enjoyed face painting and taking part in an aviation challenge. They also went on a walk around the canal and Colemere, looking for insects and words of a safety sentence on a pre-laid trail. On arrival back to the Lyneal Guide Centre, the girls enjoyed a picnic lunch they prepared in the morning. They were then awarded badges before heading home with their parents packed with loads of exciting stories to share.
Whitchurch Trefoil Guild Guiding for adults officially launched on the 16th of September 2019. 10 members attended and made their promise along with Cris Jones and Muriel Rayner (representing County Trefoil).
Clare and Pat celebrated their 5 year county commissioner term with a meal at Hodnet Hall gardens. The weather was delightful and guests were able to look at the gardens before presentations were made. Clare received her Laurel Award and 20 year long service and Lady Jane her 40 year service. We also presented Cris Jones as the outgoing Trefoil Chairwomen and other Vice Presidents with long service awards. We welcomed our new County Commissioner Sarah Myers and her assistant Catherine Coleman.
Frankie Dolan from 1st Lawley Brownies was presented with an Outstanding Achievement Award tonight for her bravery whilst on holiday last September where she saved a young child’s life. When she went swimming Frankie noticed a young child drowning who had gone out of their depth and then pulled the child to the side of the pool. Frankie acted quickly and fearlessly.
Well Done Frankie
