We are all about trying new things that teach girls about themselves, their community and their world.

The age group is 7-10 years old and (as at September 2019) we still have a few spaces left so why not come along and join in the fun.

MAY 2024

The Brownies have had a busy year with a full unit.

The girls have enjoyed working towards their seasons badge, learning all about different seasons and making bird feeders and autumn posters and planting sunfloers.

 

Earlier this year, the girls enjoyed a trip to the local ten-pin bowling alley in Kirkintilloch. We also recently welcomed the local police force to chat to the girls about all things safety as part of their badge work.

The younger girls have been learning their promise and Brownie motto to "Lend a Hand". As part of this work, the girls made a poster of what they are thankful for.

We are getting prepared for out annual trip to PGL camp in Dalguise this month and will be ending the year by taking part in the Civic Week Parade.

We have been very busy at 1st Kilsyth Brownies over the last few weeks.  The girls have  been working towards their lead skills builder and have been taking it in turns to run the evening in pairs from start to finish. This has enabled the girls to increase their confidence in leadership, negotiation and compromising.

Last week the girls enjoyed doing keyring and photo frame crafts to celebrate the King's coronation. 

We welcomed two new girls last month, taking our pack numbers to 26.  We are gearing up for our camp to PGL in Dalguise this month, our first camp trip since 2019! We are booked in for raft building, abseiling, zip wire, giat swing and canoeing.

1st Kilsyth Brownies were delighted to resume face to face meetings in November 2021 after a long break due to Covid. We said goodbye to some girls who were age to leave Brownies and hello to some new faces. We have enjoyed learning new socially distanced games, celebrating St Andrews day and our Christmas craft night (which spanned two evenings!). The unit is currently full with 26 girls although we have a waiting list.

At the beginning of the Easter holidays (2019), the girls enjoyed a stay at Dalguise Outdoor Centre for a weekend of fun!

We also had a 'night out'.  We went to Asda to do a task for our Number Fun Badge.  Then on to the Police Station for a tour and to do our Crime Prevention Badge.  It was a very busy night!

March 2019

On Saturday 23 March (2019), the girls held a coffee morning in the Church Hall. All the monies raised went towards District funds for the benefit of all Rainbows, Brownies and Guides in Kilsyth.  As well as coffee and cakes, we also served rolls with bacon and sausage.  We had a great turnout and raised a lot of money for our funds.
