Guides and Brownies at Maer_2_190425

During the pandemic the Guides, Brownies and Rainbows units have not completely been closed. The Guiders have kept in contact with the girls on our Facebook site and occasional texts. The parents all have direct numbers for a point of contact with the leaders. There has also been a lot of information and activities that we have directed the girls to on the web site www girlguiding.org.uk . These are titled Adventures at Home for the age ranges and are available for all to access.

Each section has also been given a Zoom account from the Guide Association to continue regular meetings . Unfortunately the Guides havn`t met due to lack of support but the Brownie and Rainbow meetings take place weekly. We try to give a varied programme of fun and worthwhile activities, again with a lot of support from the association.

Recently both sections looked in to Remembrance Sunday traditions. The Brownies have looked at Black Lives matters focusing on Mary Seacole and the Rainbows have even had a promise ceremony over the internet.

The Zoom meetings are good but not all the children take part and the Guiders are all looking forward to returning to face to face meetings.

Well, another successful conclusion to Halmer End Methodist Church's 2020 Christmas Shoebox Appeal despite having concerns that we would be struggling to achieve anything like the 343 we filled in 2019 due to the ongoing pandemic. However, we continued to receive hand knitted donations from our wonderful group of knitters, and continued to collect other appropriate shoebox contents from...
