Peter Pan and the Brownies

Home » Newsroom » Peter Pan and the Brownies

'Peter Pan' was the theme of this year's annual Chelford Brownies Pack Holiday weekend at Ashley Activity Centre near Mobberley.

Eighteen Brownies took part in the Pack Holiday, and the sunny weather led to lots of outdoor hunts and activities. Indoor crafts included making a seashell plant pot; creating a shadow picture of themselves; decorating a mermaid mobile and making a pirate treasure chest with bead bracelets.

Regular Brownie Leaders Alison Richardson and Sue Roycroft were joined by Snowy Owl Helen Roskell (née Jenkinson of Lower Withington), who now lives in York but returned to help out for the weekend.

The girls completed activity books during the weekend, to gain their Brownie Holiday badge. They also gained an extra badge this year — the new Ashley Challenge badge — by tackling a scavenger hunt, keeping their bedrooms tidy, helping with the chores, and going on the zipwire, amongst other clauses.

On the Sunday morning, the girls held their own Peter Pan-themed 'church' service, which will be repeated in Chelford School on Sunday morning, July 3rd.
