Sparkle Celebrations at Stafford Showground
On July 9th 9 brownies from 1st Alsagers Bank and Halmer End pack and their 3 leaders attended Sparkle at Stafford Showground. This was to celebrate 100 years of Girl Guiding in Staffordshire. This huge event was attended by over 1,000 girls from the Rainbow, Brownie and Guide sections. We were collected by coach from Silverdale library with our food and provisions for a day out.

At the Showground the girls couldn`t believe how many brownies were there! The area was divided between the Fun House, the Mega Zone and the Glitter Ball. We were in the Fun House first and the girls enjoyed all the fun of the fairground. They liked just going on rides without having a ticket and not waiting for a long time in queues. The less adventurous among them went to learn circus skills in a tent. Then they did activities such as whack the rat! and hoopla . On completing 8 challenges they were rewarded with some candy floss.

Next stop was the Mega Zone, an area full of inflatables such as helter skelters and bouncy castles. Here the girls paused for a while to have their lunch but were soon enjoying themselves again. We sheltered from the sun — yes it was a perfect day weather wise — by watching a magic show.

On the way to the glitter ball we passed through the time tunnel with uniforms and information from way back in Guiding. The girls laughed at a replica of Brown Owl`s uniform from 1960! Then onto the Glitter Ball. Here the girls could meet a Disney Princess and enjoy dancing and singing. Most of them preferred the silent disco and it was funny to watch them dance and sing with headphones on but no noise! This was a big hit with the Guiders too.

After this we put on our purple sparkle t-shirts that had been decorated at the last meeting. Each Division had a different colour t-shirt and it was nice to look around at them all. We then sat and watched a celebration show that included; the Disney Princesses, Olly Murs and Robbie Williams Tribute acts and the show finished off with a dance act and everyone singing Happy Birthday.

We all had a brilliant but very exhausting day. The girls got a real sense of belonging to a big movement. The Guiders enjoyed having fun with the girls without having to organise everything themselves. It will be a day that will stay in all their memories for a long time. The pictures show the t-shirts the girls decorated, the guiders with glitter in their hair and all of us having our lunch in the Mega Zone.
