Alsagers Bank and Halmer End Brownies Sponsored Walk
On Saturday 6th October the Brownies, Guides, members of Halmer End Methodist Church, parents and dogs took part in a sponsored ramble in conjunction with BBC Countryfile to raise money for Children in Need. The party met at the Chapel and then walked for an hour around Podmore lake in Bateswood Nature Reserve.
Despite the poor weather all had a wonderful time; even the leaders who were chased by the local geese from the lake. Mid point in the walk the group stopped for refreshments at the seating area and it was here that the birds took a fancy to the food on offer but then pestered two of the leaders.
The sponsor money was collected and thanks are due to the generous donations from all involved. £245 is now the final total for the walk and this has been sent to Children in Need.

We are hoping to start Rainbows for girls age 5-7 after Christmas. This will run on Thursdays, the same evening as Brownies and Guides, but for just an hour. Please speak to any of the above leaders for more details.
