Middlewood Division Report

| 18/12/2019

Be Well:

  • Rainbows Brownies and guides working on activity skills builders and UMAs
  • Visits to jump nation and fun swims have been popular with the girls
  • One district Brownie holiday took place at Glenbrook and girls made new friends and took part in tree climbing, archery, traversing and a spot of site service-leaf sweeping!!


  • Lots of adventures over the summer and recent months saw Rainbows having a sleepover adventure at Waddow and went grass sledging, Several brownie holidays and guide camps and Rangers and young leaders went to the County SS weekend at Glenbrook.

Skills for the future:

  • Girls have gained confidence and learnt new skills at Forest School,Girls have participated in and enjoyed the plastic Pledge UMA and are now pioneers for waste and recycling.
  • Girls have taken part in Parliament week and are doing mini election campaigns.

Know myself:

  • Girls have made their promises in places of their choice, one at her church parade, one in a canoe, two by firelight at a campfire, one leader at camp-allowing everyone to make their own choice and following oe of our 5 essentials-decision making.Girls and young women are growing in confidence due to their guiding activities and the new programme is now lending itself to be much more girl led.

Express myself:

  • Several girls and leaders and trefoilers! went to the Big Gig and sang danced and waved their glowsticks to the music-the loud arena was no match for the excitement and noise of our girls
  • Girls have crafted and learned new skills such as mosaics and held pamper and beauty nights along with trips to the bodyshop and  Pizza express to make their own pizzas

Take Action:

  • Girls are becoming more community focussed and this was in evidence on Remembrance Sunday with the high attendance at parades and services in all of our districts
  • One unit has helped at their church fair and another unit is planning to do some singing at a nursing home and more units are interested to become dementia friends
  • We have welcomed new leaders into the division and congratulated 2 new leader mums on the birth of 2 trainee Rainbows
