2nd Whittle le Woods Brownies meet on Tuesday evenings from 6.30pm until 8.00pm at the Scout Hut on Chorley Old Road in Whittle le Woods

Brownies is a part of Girlguiding UK, and is for girls aged from 7 to 9 years of age.

Brownies have incredible experiences together, make new friends, learn new skills and take on challenges.

So far this year we’ve had a sleepover, rock climbed and abseiled on pack holiday, completed our Hostess, Fire Safety and Unicorn Challenge badges, celebrated Harry Potter Night and Pancake Tuesday, been pottery painting at The Alabaster Jar, completed a sponsored walk, been trampolining and been to Frederick’s Ice Cream Parlour. Phew!

We have lots more exciting things planned, so if you'd like more information, contact us now to arrange a visit and see what a fantastic opportunity joining Girlguiding is.

We’re also looking for Leaders, so if you have a couple of hours free on a Tuesday evening, why not join us and help us give girls experiences and memories they’ll remember forever.
