    Resource Expenses form

    I would just ask leaders to keep receipts and submit. No need for a form.

    Young leader and subs

    If she isn't attending your unit then I would just take her off GO for unit. Her main role would then default to the Brownie unit where she is a YL. They would then either pay for her or ask parents for subs depending on their policy. But out of courtesy I would let the Brownie unit know you...

    Weekly Discussion: Promise ceremonies

    Normally the girl making her promise will choose when & where. So could be traditional at the end of meeting with parents present or at park, tennis courts, beach or even swimming pool. I have eight girls who are ready to make their promise & am conscious that this could take a while. Think we...

    Starting dates

    County Campsites

    My two trusty prayer books that I have used for over 20 years are literally falling to bits & need replaced. Does anyone have suggestions of some good books with readings that would be suitable for Brownies? The girls could then choose between prayers or a reading to close the meeting with. They...

    Well, that's the covered balloons sitting in front of the radiators! Used just some flour & water with newspapers. Seems to be drying fine.... :rolleyes: We'll see it a few days............

    Would like to do a piñata for our Thinking Day meeting. What is the best type of paper mache to use? Have seen ideas for wallpaper paste or just flour & water but not sure what would be the easiest to use. I have just over a week to let it dry would that be long enough? If anyone has done this...

    Scottish Camp 2015

    Is it maybe "G in the Park" you are thinking of? Not sure exactly where it is being held, Ayrshire seems to ring a bell but think is the first or second weekend in July.
