2nd Swanwick St Andrew’s Brownies

We meet in the Old School House at 6.00 pm on term-time Tuesdays and have a full energetic unit of girls and leaders.
Brownies are girls aged seven to ten who become a member of a Six and follow a programme called the Brownie Adventure. Brownies opens up a world of exciting challenges and the opportunity to try new things and to make brilliant friends.Through regular meetings, special events, day trips, sleepovers, camps and holidays, Brownies learn new hobbies, play music, explore other cultures and get adventurous outdoors. Girls can also extend their knowledge and abilities by working towards Brownie interest badges covering many different hobbies and activities from Science investigator to Circus skills.The name ‘Brownie Adventure’ reflects the world of exciting opportunities, challenges and fun that is Brownies. The Adventure is divided into three areas.

  • you
  • community
  • world.

Our unit was first registered in 1944 and has continued to flourish from that time. Over the years’ uniform, programme and changes to the wording of the promise have been updated to keep what Guiding offers relevant to today’s girls.
