Rainbow And Brownie Groups

Ann Cotterill

Rainbows And Brownies Head Leader, St John’s Church

I have been a member of Girl Guiding since joining Brownies at the age of 7 (Rainbows didn’t exist then!) I then went on to Guides and this is when I started to help at St John’s Brownies to gain my service flash badge for helping in the community. I loved Brownies so much that I stayed with the unit, later becoming an adult leader the Guider in charge and more recently opening up our new Rainbow unit.

If you would like to apply for your Daughter to attend Rainbows or brownies, please note that all applications are now made on the central UK Girl Guiding site. You can find registration links by clicking the registration button in the respective sections below.

Rainbows

Rainbows are for girls aged 5 – 7 years old and they follow a fun filled active programme call The Rainbow Jigsaw. It’s all about learning by doing. The aim of the Rainbow Jigsaw is to enable girls to develop in all four areas.

Look – we encourage girls to look around them and learn about their own environment, each other and their community. We also help them understand that they are part of a wider world and learn about festivals from other cultures.

Learn – Rainbows learn through a range of activities – such as crafts, recipes, games and visiting interesting places. They might get talks by local causes or visits from police officers and other professionals and experts.

Laugh – Rainbows have lots of fun. Their meetings involve games, songs, parties, celebrations, making a mess and maybe their very first sleepover!

Love – through Rainbows, girls learn about caring and sharing with family and friends, working together, fair play, and being considerate and helpful to others.
