'Mary Poppins' theme for Chelford Brownies weekend away

Chelford Brownies enjoyed plenty of Autumnal outdoor activities on their recent Pack Holiday residential weekend.

After cancelling their annual weekend away last year, due to lockdown, and deferring it from May this year because of pandemic restrictions, the girls were delighted when it was rearranged for October.

Most of the 22-strong Pack were able to attend the weekend, which was organised by Brownie Leaders Alison Richardson and Sue Roycroft, supported by former unit helper Helen Roskell and Brownie Mum Laura Levinsohn.

There was a 'Mary Poppins' theme, with craft activities including making a kite, a bracelet, and a memory box, plus outdoor hunts and games.

Assistant Chelford Guide Leader Laura Davis kindly volunteered to visit to 'teach' the girls camp-building activities as part of their work for Camp Stage 2 skills builder badge. They also learned how to build a fire, and manage it safely, before a session toasting marshmallows.

Young leader-in-training Ella Aylwin also helped on the Saturday, and plans are now underway for next year's Pack Holiday, in May 2022.

Chelford Guides are also recruiting, and for girls aged from 10 to 14, it's a great opportunity to enjoy fun and friendship, build new skills and experience, and develop capabilities that will enhance a future CV or university applications.
