Brownie buddy

When a new girl joins Brownies for the first time, she is known as a Tweenie until she takes her Promise.  A “Tweenie” is a girl who is ‘tween not being a Brownie and not being a Brownie”.  Our Brownie buddies will usually be the sixer or second of each six.

  • This term’s Brownie buddies are:
  • Hedgehogs – Holly for Izzy D and Vika
  • Rabbits – Charis for Izzy C and Jessica.

To received the lovely Brownie buddy badge and certificate, a Brownie buddy has to complete the following clauses:

  1. Show your new Brownie around your meeting place.
  2. Tell your new Brownie what happens in the Brownie ring at the start and end of Brownies.
  3. Explain the Brownie signals (e.g. hand up and ‘window’ means listen).
  4. Teach your new Brownie our opening song ‘Brownie bells’ actions.
  5. Teach your new Brownie our finishing song ‘Softly falls the light of day’.
  6. For Tweenies only – Help your new Brownie complete their Tweenie programme worksheets.
  7. For Tweenies only – Practice the Brownie promise and law with your new Brownie.

A Brownie buddy usually has between 6-10 weeks to complete all the clauses and will receive the badge and certificate at the Tweenies’ promise ceremony or at our end of term awards ceremony.
