Summer School Fair Stall – June 2020
We did our first School Fair Stall last yet and enjoyed it so much we are doing it again!  Mainly to raise funds for our Unit but also our profile as there are lot of other Brownies units in the area so want to make sure we maintain our numbers and continue our future as a busy and vibrant unit.  The plan is to do a combination of activity stalls such as Human Fruit Machine  and Lucky Lollipop Dip plus sell craft kits to take away.   Again, we will ask for volunteer Brownies to come and help man the stall.

When: Saturday 20th June
Location: As per consent form & newsletter
Full super smart Brownie uniform plus drink would be required.
This event was included in the September 2019 multi-activity consent form so no need to complete a separate consent form.

End of Term Event – July 2020
Our end of term trip will be a return to an activity centre in Lincoln to take part in some outside water activities. The plan is to arrive at 6pm, get changed into wetsuits, buoyancy aids and helmets. Then we’d have an hour in the water doing one or more of the following activities:

Messing around on the water on sit-on tops, pedalos and inflatables.
Mission Impossible – using similar equipment, but this is a more instructor led activity and the Brownies would work as two teams to complete challenges.
Sit-on Top session – a chance to have a go with our sit on top canoes and learn some paddling skills.

Out of the water around 7.30pm then changed back into warm things and have a drink.  So to sum up:
