Both Brownies and Guides have enjoyed regular meetings with games, singing, craft, cooking and other activities including trying out some of the new activities which will be forming part of the new Girlguiding programme due to be introduced later next year. In the last year Woodchester Brownies and Guides both formed colour parties and took part in the Woodchester Wayside Cross Centenary and Rededication Service and the Nailsworth Remembrance Sunday parade and Church service. Both units also were also guaranteed a good time when they attended the pantomime by the Stanley Players.
The Brownies worked incredibly hard to achieve their sports badge, with each girl showing improvement in her abilities. They also had great fun learning about the outdoors to gain their Wildlife Explorer badge. One Brownie also had fun as she helped the community and environment, when she participated in the Nailsworth Town Council/Rotary Club annual town litter pick. Several girls enjoyed a weekend away on Pack Holiday with 1st Nailsworth Brownies. Some new Brownies have made their Brownie Promise and parents have been entertained as other girls have completed their hostess badges.
The Guides thoroughly enjoyed a visit to Westonbirt Arboretum exploring and learning more about survival skills, including gutting a fish and building an emergency shelter. Some Guides joined Nailsworth Guides on summer camp. More recently the girls had a sleepover at Go Bananas Soft play with 1st Nailsworth Guides, took part in the Woodchester annual litter pick and enjoyed an ice cream on Rodborough Common and exploring the woods.
