    11-year-old Brownies

    Seem to be a lot of cases of girls who joined at 7 still being in Brownies at 11 - in some units, as the norm not the exception. What are the pros and cons?

    Weekly Discussion: Terrible twos (four or five years late)

    They refuse to try. When they aren’t with a friend they cry. Wandering off from their activity or circle time is common. They want one on one attention all the time. They interrupt other girls. It’s “never their turn” just after they had a go. Some girls are surprisingly mature when they start...

    Taking Guides on Pack Holiday

    Hi, In October I (hopefully) will be running my first Brownie Pack holiday. However, we currently have 24 girls with about 11 leaving in Summer to become Guides.

    Hi everyone, My Brownie unit is celebrating it's 50th Birthday in September and we're having trouble coming up with good trip ideas that won't break the bank.

    Question? Brownies on a sleeper train

    I am in the very early stages of planning (2019) and wondered if anyone has taken Brownies on an overnight sleeper train? The cabins hold 6 berths, and my concern is around security and safety. If the doors are locked from the inside, how do you gain access in an emergency. And how do you...
