Our older girls have been reading the book of Ruth and thinking about different sorts of love. Love for one's family was illustrated by excerpts from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which quite naturally led on to consumption of chocolate. Another week, love for friends was demonstrated by making friendship bracelets and last week the girls each made a card for someone they love (Mum mostly!).
The Explorers have been continuing to think about Our Country, about people who protect us and the component parts of the Union Jack. To compensate for the lack of a specific Welsh component in the flag, we made fire-breathing Welsh dragons to take home. Last Monday the girls were awarded their Our Country badges, iced cakes (and ate them) and played games.
New girls are always welcome — we meet in the Church Hall on Monday evenings from 6pm (Explorers, 4½-8) or 6.30pm (Juniors, Seniors & Brigaders). You can find more information on the church website or contact the Captain, Kym Burgess (Tel 01252 334814, Email kym@sidius.free-online.co.uk)
