    New Interest Badges

    There are some Brownie badges that are attracting more interest - baking, performing, painting, inventing all clear front runners. Had a few interested in Grow Your Own, Dancing, Local History, Jobs, Languages, Aviation but yet to come to fruition. One who did Charities which surprised me. I...

    Common Q&A about the new programme

    Unlikely to have been like this though, given all the timings end in 5 or 0. You'd have 1:05, or 3:40 or 6:15.
