    Brownie doll (like Olivia)

    Long shot but does anybody have a Brownie doll (Betty/Bethany as I've heard her called) like the Rainbow Olivia doll, that I could buy by any chance?

    Question? What do you give your rainbows when they make their promise?

    I'm assuming by Devon Guides Badge you mean like a county standard? It's probably best that you do, otherwise you may get some unhappy rainbows! We've just made sash's to see how they go, so I think I'll put the badge on the sash to go over their promise badge to fill it up a bit before they...

    Question? What do you give your rainbows when they make their promise?

    This question comes after browsing the online shop The rainbow promise badge is to show their commitment (or something to that effect) and the rainbow woven arc badge is meant to be given when they make their promise We always used the promise badge as the promise badge, and gave them a bag...

    What to take to recruitment

    Hi everyone! I've just come back to a rainbow and brownie unit whose numbers have been dwindling for a while, and I'm determined to do something about it! I've had a flyer through for a fun day at the local park and am just waiting on them getting back to me. However I'm wondering what to...

    Question? Sweetastic badges

    Does anyone by any chance have any sweetastic badges left? I am thinking of doing it with a new unit and am not sure if they have already done it. If they haven't, we would need about 19? The link on their website for the order form does not work :-/ Thanks in advance everyone! xXx

    Flags

    Although I do like the flag, I agree that with it being linked to the new shapes I wonder how long they'll be in style for. My units flag which was there when I arrived is just a plain white trefoil on a blue backing which is nice and effective, but is the old style trefoil and s a bit out dated...

    Question? How do you tie your necker?

    It depends on where I am. Most of the time I opt for a Friendship knot, unless I'm going to a Leader meeting in which case I wear the one I made at Intense camp on a leather burning activity, with the trefoil and my name on. Or at rangers I have a rubber duck one :D

    Question? Members uniform

    As it's not a wide range of clothing available, in order to keep with the team I'd say it's fine. Yes, it's not what they're *supposed* to wear, but if it's not available in her size surely the point is to wear something to show that you're part of Girlguiding and part of a team and that does...

    Question? At what age should Guides be on their own?

    Thank you everybody for your answers! :) They've all been really helpful. We're going to Chessington in May and last time we went only 5 wanted to go so both adults and Guides went together, but we've got about 12 going this time and wondered what the best way to do this was. We were thinking...

    Question? At what age should Guides be on their own?

    As a matter of interest, at what age do you think Guides should be deemed responsible enough to be allowed to go off on their own on trips? Obviously that would differ depending on where you are/what you are doing, but what are your thoughts? When I went on my end of year 6 trip (aged 11) to...
