On Saturday April 13th 6 Brownies, 5 Guides and 4 leaders went to Maer campsite for a fun day out. We hired the Breeze Chalet which is attached to the campsite and although the day was sunny it was cold so we were fortunate to have a warm base.

The girls took part in various outdoor activities. They did a blindfold trail (our first picture with the cows) where the girls are led by a partner through a course containing several objects such as a tunnel, a bridge and a tent! This is good for building up trust among the group.The girls were watched by curious cows in the adjoining field. Also unique to the site, the girls did grass sledging on specially made sledges that go down a big hill on the field. The girls also took time out to do bird watching and a scavenger hunt. They spent free time on the wooden activity playground.

The craft activities were making bird feeders (our second picture) and one of the day's highlights was when a pheasant took food straight from a Brownie's hands! The girls also made an Easter garden and discussed the real meaning of Easter.

The day ended with a campfire and supper, including toasted marsh mellows on the fire.

Everyone went home happy but quite tired!

The guiding groups are very fortunate to have this wonderful site on our doorsteps belonging to Staffordshire Girlguiding. If you would like to know more about the site please browse on their web site here.

Instead of the Church gathered we remain the Church dispersed in our homes. Let me remind you about the Tree of Hope in the grounds of Audley Methodist Church near the front notice board.

Thank you to all the children, parents and helpers who came to Messy Church's Big Pancake Party. You raised £50 for the Church Urban Fund, helping to support school holiday feeding schemes for hungry children! We certainly had a great time on a treasure hunt, decorating chef's hats, navigating an obstacle course whilst holding a frying pan, completing a crossword, cooking and...
