Girlguiding in Staplegrove area

Staplegrove Rainbows   
After completing the Mexican challenge in style with a taste extravaganza, the girls enjoyed fajitas, guacamole dip
served with tortillas and watermelon smoothie.  All freshly prepared and enjoyed by all.  During the holidays the Rainbows were lucky to enjoy a fun trip to the South West Deer and Rescue centre in Wayford, where the girls enjoyed feeding
and learning about breeds of deer and their habitats.  Meeting Jack the very large stag and feeding him digestives was top of the Rainbows most enjoyed list, including the leaders who place the digestives within their teeth to pass them across to him.  This term with the change in the promise members of the unit are supporting each other with promise activities like a promise relay, a new promise tree and a fun balloon game on a large scale.  The Rainbows are also completing activities under the rustle, bustle and squeak badge. They like ideas like a woodland walk, bird cakes and clay hedgehogs.


Staplegrove Brownies 

Staplegrove Brownies have had a very busy term, and have had an olympic theme running through most of it.
We have tried out a new sport every week, including tennis, rugby, athletics, volleyball and football.  We spent an evening at Taunton Cricket ground watching the arrival of the Olympic torch, ran our own Community Games, and made wooden gold medals to keep .  We celebrated  the end of term with an evening climbing and tackling the new low ropes course at Vivary Park.
8 Brownies are also going to the Millenium Stadium in Cardiff by train to watch the ladies football on Saturday 28th July, watching Team GB v Brazil, and New Zealand v Cameroons.
We also spent a very exciting evening at Fyne Court, trying out some new activities, and also exploring the site.   We celebrated the Queen's Jubilee, at Huish Woods with a wide game that was enjoyed by all.
18 Brownies are going on Pack Holiday in September to PGL Beam House, some for the first time, we are being joined this year by Wiveliscombe Brownies who are embarking on their first pack holiday.
