6th Congleton Brownies are looking for volunteers.
6th Congleton Brownies - girls and leaders - really enjoy their meetings at Black Firs primary school. Brownies first met in the school hall in the early 1970s and returned a few years ago. Being a member of Girlguiding brings many opportunities - a space where girls can be themselves, have fun, build brilliant friendships, gain valuable life skills and make a positive contribution to their community.
Our volunteers are our great strength and we’re lucky that the adult volunteers involved with 6th Congleton Brownies are experienced and bring a variety of skills. Being involved in guiding as a volunteer is a fantastic opportunity. You can make new friends, have fun, do things you'd never dreamt of doing, add to your CV and make a real difference to the lives of today's girls.
We’re looking for a few more adult volunteers to join Hayley, Helen and Eleisha and the young women who also help with Brownies so that we can build a strong team. A warm welcome awaits. You’ll have a personal mentor and practical training to provide the knowledge and skills you’ll need. Meetings are early evenings on Thursdays 6 - 7.30pm.
A recent new volunteer, Lisa, said “As well as giving the girls amazing opportunities, I've also personally benefitted from volunteering. After every meeting I feel I've achieved something great.” If any parents had the chance to see a performance of Congleton Gang Show at the Daneside Theatre last November, you’ll know what an incredible atmosphere can be created by guiding and scouting members together. It really is worthwhile.
Eventually, we’d really like to start a Rainbow unit for girls aged 5 - 7 years and to do that we’ll need to find some more volunteers but for now it’s help with Brownies that’s the priority.
Please do get in touch to find out more: contact Sue Taylor on 07970 416371 or register your interest at www.girlguiding.org.uk/get-involved/.
We want to hear from you!
