Monday 20 July – I Promise …
Hello everyone! We had our first virtual meeting this week with a very special Promise Ceremony for 4 of our 6 Tweenies. Buttercup and Daffodil took part and had great fun running this special virtual session for Evelyn, Evie, Gracie and Jasmine to take their promise. It was a little different than our usual traditional ceremony but we still had our toadstools, magic pond and got to sing our favourite Promise song: “Twist me and turn me and show me the elf, I looked in the water, and there saw ..” Parents were on hand to pin Promise badges to uniform and Daffodil had posted the girls all their badges and their new Brownie books. It was lovely to see the girls again (even a little emotional!) but what a fabulous introduction to virtual guiding. Well done girls for doing such a fabulous job and thank you to Buttercup for joining us.
Even though we have now broken up for the summer holidays; at 1st Waddington (RAF) Brownies we usually continue to meet during this period. Sadly, due to the current COVID-19 crisis this won’t be happening this year, but we will continue to stay in touch with our Brownies and look forward to receiving news and emails about challenges and badges completed. However, this will now be our last weekly blog until September, but Daffodil will continue to send regular newsletter emails to parents to let them know what’s going on.
No right or wrong answers to last week’s challenge but did you get any of these countries? Botswana, Guinea, Zimbabwe, Egypt, Sudan, Yemen, Australia, Cambodia, Thailand, Albania, Belgium, France, Argentina, Nicaragua or Venezuela. A full list of all Girlguiding countries can be found on the WAGGGS website here. This week’s challenge is How Many Trefoils? How many whole trefoils can you see on the picture? From next week, we’ll have just one challenge a week which will be send to parents in our weekly newsletter.
AROUND THE WORLD CHALLENGE 29 JUNE – 31 AUGUST 2020
It’s still not too late to join this special Girlguiding Lincolnshire South challenge. The idea is to get out and active in any way you can and record your miles as you do so. You can start recording your miles as soon as possible and if you have been out and active from 29 June, please include them. If you take your dog with you, parents, or family, remember to include their miles. We have entered as a Unit, so send Daffodil your miles every Sunday and she will forward them on every Monday. There will be virtual certificates sent to you as you reach certain mile posts. We will also order badges for those taking part.
That’s it for now. Keep safe, keep healthy and keep in touch xx
