100 Years of Brownies – Division Events 2014


Remembrance Day 2013 & Nailsworth Noel Parade


Unveiling of Centenary Plinth – Gloucestershire Mid-Division

On Rodborough Common there is a group of trees planted by Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Guiding and Scouting.  To commemorate 100 years since Guiding started Girlguiding Gloucestershire Mid-Division was given permission by the National Trust to erect a stone plinth nearby.  The plinth was designed and created locally by a stone mason from Woodchester, and one summer evening Leaders from the Division gathered for the unveiling.  It was a very special evening as two girls from Nailsworth made their Guide promise and Sue from Tetbury District was presented with a good service award.

Borneo Activity Afternoon

Charlotte, one of our Senior Section members, organised an afternoon of activities based around Borneo, for Rainbows and Brownies of Nailsworth Valley District.  This was one of many fund-raising ideas she put into practice to raise money for her Guiding trip to Borneo in the summer.  The girls took part in craft projects, dancing and finding out about wildlife in Borneo.  Every member participating received a specially designed badge.

Sleepover 2013

Nailsworth Valley District sleepover 2013 was themed around out-door activities.  Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Senior Section members stayed overnight at Cranham.  Supported by Leaders and Trefoil Guild members they took part in archery, climbing wall, grass sledging, out door cooking and the assault course.


Once again, all Sections of Girlguiding Nailsworth Valley District turned out in force at the District Craft Day.  Rainbows, Brownies and Guides participated in a huge variety of different crafts, organised by Leaders, Trefoil Guild members and Senior Section members.  We offered paper marbling, candle making, rubber stamping, card making, silk painting, origami, friendship bracelets and weaving, flower arranging, tie-dying, salt dough, beads and jewellery making.

Craft badges were gained by all the Brownies and Guides who attended, and the Brownies also had the opportunity to complete a clause of their Collectors badge when we were fortunate enough to be able to visit the stamp exhibition, organised by Christ Church in the hall, during our lunch break.  We were also very pleased to be visited by our District President in the afternoon.


On Saturday, 29th September 2012 Girlguiding Nailsworth Valley District members held a fundraising day in the Mortimer Gardens in Nailsworth.  We’d like to thank everyone who supported us; generously donating to our coin trail, purchasing goods from the stalls, having a go on the lucky dip and children having their faces painted.  Every Section of Girlguiding was represented at this event; Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Senior Section, Leaders, Trefoil Guild, parents and former members of Girlguiding.

Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Celebrations in Nailsworth

Leaders and Senior Section members from Girlguiding Nailsworth Valley District ran a craft tent at the Town’s celebrations of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.  Thanks to the generosity of the Town Council we were able to provide the crafts free of charge and we proved to be very popular with children of all ages.



Although many girls were unfortunately unable to join us at this event, the girls who participated had a fun-filled time.  Have a look at some of the amazing activities we completed in the space of 24 hours:
