1st Witheridge Brownies

The world of Guiding is celebrating its Centenary Year from September 2009 to October 2010 and this will be an exciting time for all those involved in the Guiding World.

It was in 1909 when some girls turned up unannounced at a rally held for Bot Scouts at Crystal Palace, in London. Robert Paden Powell, the Chief Scout was somewhat confused to see them and asked what they were doing there.

The girls said that they wanted him to start "something for the girls". That was the beginning and girls and women began taking part in fun games, challenges and adventure.

As part of the Tiverton Division celebrations Witheridge Brownies attended a Centenary launch party. There was a fantastic parade of uniforms through the years and amazing displays of badges and members adventures. The Brownies will also be taking part in the Adventure 100 which is a Centenary Challenges that all members from Rainbows up to Trefoil Guild can take part in.

We have built towers, made upside down cakes, designed uniforms from the 1960s, and had a night of doing 100 things, all for the Adventure.

Paramedic Matt Waters came to teach the Brownies some First Aid and the leaders were very proud when they all gained their First Aid badge.
