At the time of writing we've been back after the Christmas break for only two weeks.
The Explorers are on the topic of 'Our Country'. So far we have identified landmarks and places of interest (the Spinnaker Tower was better known than Stonehenge) and tried, mostly unsuccessfully, to identify members of the Royal Family. Making our own crowns was popular, but I think sampling regional specialities (varieties of cake, of course) at our next meeting might beat even posing as a princess!
The older girls are thinking about big changes in their lives. Last week they were talking about moving from Primary School to Secondary School and exercised their creative talents in designing a new school uniform.
We have room for more girls in the Explorer group just now, so if you know of a girl in the 4½ to 8 years range who might like to join, do let us know. Nancy Buck (Explorer Leader)

So there...

Dear Friends,I am sure that we are grateful for the beautiful spring weather that we have enjoyed this week. It has given us much to be thankful for in this time of uncertainty and anxiety as our daily lives have in many ways been turned upside down.A hymn that brings me reassurance and comfort is:Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father,There is no shadow of turning with Thee;Thou...
