1st Glossop Brownies 


The 1st Glossop Brownies began in June 1929 and held meetings in the Duke of Norfolk School which was originally based next to   Glossop Parish Church Of All Saints.
We are affiliated to Glossop Parish Church of All Saints and throughout the year attend church parades, help with fund raising for the church and do a community clean up of the Joseph Hague tomb which is situated in the church grounds.

We currently meet at the Division Headquarters, a lovely new building behind a row of terraced houses opposite Dinting Primary School on Wednesday evenings - term time only. 

2014 is a special year for us as we celebrate our 100th birthday. First there were Scouts, then Guides and then the Brownies were created. Lord and Lady Baden Powell certainly had great ideas!
Our Brownie Pack are working on their 100th Birthday Badge and we have done a variety of activities from "Life as a Brownie" over its 100 year history. One of our favourite meetings was a Brownie's life in the 1940's . We held a Blackout night where we couldn't use mains electricity and used torchlight and solar lights instead. (Candles and oil lamps were too risky!)  We played Brownie Bingo this way and had lots of fun.
Coming soon will be the "Oink Challenge" a fun badge that has been devised by the Usk Guides of Monmouthshire who are fund raising for their division.

1st Glossop Brownies have a fun team of Leaders and Young Leaders and a full pack of Brownies with a waiting list.

As a Brown Owl, my philosophy is that Brownies is all about having fun, and if the girls learn something new, then that's a bonus!
