The Friday Brownies, catering for girls aged 7 – 10 years,  are led by a team of trained and vetted volunteers, ably supported by  regular helpers, and also by occasional visitors who have special skills such as Zumba, first aid, geo-caching and drama.  The girls enjoy cooking, craft, and visits to the swimming pool.  Other special activities include an annual Eisteddfod, a theatre visit, and badge-based challenges.  Two visits to “Techniquest” were enjoyed this year, and the opportunity of  meeting with other Brownie packs.  We also organised a Stargazer badge evening and a sleepover.

At Church Parade the girls can take part in the worship of the church, by reading lessons and prayers, and afterwards hosting occasional coffee mornings.

In July we will be saying goodbye to a few Brownies who have been excellent Sixers.  A special trip to the new Adventure Golf venue in St. David’s 2 has been arranged.

The waiting list for Friday Brownies continues to be quite long but we hope to be able to welcome a few new girls in September when we start up again after our summer break. Parents can register an interest for their daughters to join any Brownie pack by visiting:

where they can choose an evening which is convenient for them.  They will then be directed to a local unit.
