Nancy Buck: May 2016
Girls' Brigade News
Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to camp we go!
With a bucket and spade...but perhaps not the hand grenade of the camp song learnt in my misspent youth!
Fresh from Bank Holiday fun with our families, we will be heading off to Littlehampton bright and early (well, 9am) on Tuesday 31st May, to stay at Littlehampton Baptist Church until the Saturday morning. We have been there several times before — the location is ideal for walks on the beach or along the river, crazy golf and the swimming pool and the accommodation is good too.
Our company evenings have been enlivened by a dog, guinea-pigs and a rabbit and most recently a tortoise which have visited as part of the Explorer study of 'Our Pets'. Our thanks go to Mrs Nash, Lisa Chubb and Norma Duke for the use of their animals and their time and trouble.
The older girls have been practising different aspects of entertaining. Last Monday the kitchen was stocked with the makings for delicious drinks including ice-cream. There was a bring-a-friend evening and one visitor who turned up a week early was keen enough to come again on the 'proper' night.
If you know any girls who might like to join the company, the summer is a good time to start.
Since we will be going out some evenings it is a good idea to phone first — for Explorers (4½-8 years) please contact Nancy (Tel 01420 85994) or for Juniors and Company (8 and up) please contact Kym (Tel 01252 334814 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org).
