Brownies' Weekend Away
Chelford Brownies and Guides enjoy fantastic weather for joint weekend away
Chelford Brownies and Guides joined together for the first time on Pack Holiday weekend away at Ashley Activity Centre, Mobberley.
The 'Winnie-the-Pooh' themed weekend included a variety of games, activities and crafts with Guides supervising the cooking. Sunday morning was a real treat, when District Guider and Camp Advisor Sue Hector led the Guides in outdoor cooking, producing a barbeque lunch for all which was eaten outside in warm sunshine.
The girls had also been able to hold their 'church' service outside, with Sue Hector directing the marching.
Saturday included visits by Chelford/Marthall/Lower Withington Vicar Gerri Tetzlaff, who willingly joined in the washing-up. The morning had included a visit by Snowy Owl Helen Jenkinson, who lives in York but regularly volunteers as an adult helper on Chelford Brownie Pack Holidays. She was in Lower Withington for a family wedding, and took the opportunity to bring her husband Jon and 'Baby Owl' Oliver to meet the Brownies and Guides.
New Guide Leader Laura Chaffer said: "Chelford Guides has recently relaunched and it was a great opportunity to participate in the Brownies' weekend away with a range of Guide activities, so that some of the older Brownies could learn about Chelford Guides."
Brown Owl Alison Richardson said: "We had a lovely weekend blessed by unusually warm weather for late September. I'd like to thank all the Leaders who supported the weekend, including Rainbow Owl Sue Roycroft, Eagle Owl Chris Sullivan, and 'visiting owls' Sue Hector from Wilmslow and Amanda Spedding from Alderley Edge."
Chelford Guides meet on a Tuesday evening in Chelford Scout Hall, from 7pm, after Chelford Brownies' meeting.
