Rainbows & Brownies

1st Winsham Rainbows and Brownies.

1st Winsham Brownies were re-started 3 years ago, after a long break, with just 9 girls. There are now 19 members. Over the last 3 years, some of the girls have moved up to Guides, the next stage in the Movement. The idea of Brownies has not changed much over the years, the emphasis still being on fun, helping others and working towards badges, which keeps the girls busy - but the uniform is much easier to cope with.

1st Winsham Rainbows were started 2 years ago, Rainbows being a very new branch of the Guide Movement, set up to introduce 5 - 7 year old girls to the guide Movement. The programme for them is very simple, bur structured, consisting of games and activities similar to Brownies. After 6 weeks, a rainbow undergoes a simple 'Promise' Ceremony and can wear a 'promise badge' on her Rainbow coloured tabard. Each unit chooses a colour from the spectrum for their uniform and Winsham has chosen Purple. By the age of 7, most girls are ready to move onto Brownies, and usually settle very quickly into the next stage of Guiding.

Both groups meet on Friday evenings in the Jubilee Hall. Rainbows 4.30 - 5.30 p.m. Brownies 5.30 - 7.00 p.m., term times.
