What’s happening in Crown Park Division
Over the last year, our Guiding units have thoroughly come back to full strength in Crown Park. With lots of unit’s planning great activities and undertaking residential trips to make up for so much lost time during Covid.
We’ve had 6th Wortley Brownies attend PGL at Winmarleigh Hall and 6th Wortley Guides went to camp at Brownsea Island. Hunslet Brownies had 5 days at Woodbank Activity Centre in Knowsley Safari Park grounds and 3rd Middleton Guides and Hunslet Guides went to Wellies and Wristbands at Waddow Hall! 3rd Middleton Brownies and Rainbows visited Waddow Hall for Magic and Mayhem while 3rd Middleton Guides went to watch the netball at the Commonwealth Games.
We’ve attended local events to promote Guiding in south Leeds with our information stall, designed to attract both volunteers and new young members.
We both celebrated the Queen’s Jubilee and observed her death with celebrations and tributes to her life. Lots of units planned platinum jubilee celebrations, had tea parties and completed the platinum challenge by lighting beacons and taking the opportunity to cook outside.
Many of our girls have obtained their Bronze, Silver and Gold Programme Awards, which is fantastic! We have one Brownie in particular who only needs to obtain one more interest badge and she will have completed them all!
Thank you to Olivia Clark at 51st Leeds who sang and danced for 2 hours at a local egg hunt last spring, raising £40 for the Ukraine appeal. This activity also went toward her campaign badge. Also a big thank you to 3rd Middleton who held a Quiz and cake night raising £410.00 split that between Ukraine appeal and Comic Relief.
Finally, a big thank you to all our Leaders and volunteers for all you do to keep Guiding alive in Crown Park.
