I am sure all Brownie Leaders are familiar with part 2 –organise a Brownie meeting activity or create something special for your unit.
This clause usually fills me with trepidation – what will the Brownie produce? Over the last 3 years or so, we’ve has numerous cookery books, usually chocolate themed, and we’ve been taught to dance.
So, what will the latest Brownie who is working towards her Gold Award produce? The answer is Penny, the owl from Penryn!
At the start of our first Brownie sleepover for over 2 years, Catherine brought an interesting looking white cylinder, beautifully decorated with trefoils and 1st Penryn Brownies. It sat in a corner until towards the end and then she unveiled it.
I was lost for words! Many hours and hundreds of feathers were put into making Penny, as well as her perch and box. Is it a coincidence that some of our new Brownies now want to make their promise in September?
Thank you Catherine; you have certainly raised the bar for the other Brownies who are working on their Gold award.
Sue Harris, 1st Penryn Brownies
