Girl Guiding Bankfoot                                                                                                                               on Thursdays of term time in the Hub

1st Bankfoot Rainbows from 5.45pm – 6.45pm. Rainbows is our section for girls aged 5 to 7. Rainbows is all about developing self-confidence, building friendships, learning new things and having fun. Girls get their hands dirty with arts and crafts, trying out cooking and playing games – learning by doing. We follow a programme called the Rainbow Jigsaw – lots of different activities with girls their own age – with four areas: look, learn, laugh and love. Recently we had our very first rainbow sleepover and we made our promise.

1st Bankfoot Brownies from 6pm – 7.30pm. Brownies is our section for girls aged 7 to 10. 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. We follow a programme called the Brownie Adventure –a world of exciting opportunities, challenges and fun – is divided into three areas: you, community and world. We have many adventures at home and away with our Brownie friends, this year having had a blast at PGL Dalguise.

1st Bankfoot from 6.45 to 8.00pm Guides is our section for girls aged 10 to 14. By becoming part of a worldwide community of girls who learn together and share skills and experiences, Guides have the chance to get out there and do something really different. Members take part in a wide range of exciting activities at their regular meetings, and at special events or holidays. Girls can get involved in anything from adventure sports to performing arts, travel and taking part in community action projects. Guides work together in small groups or ‘Patrols’ and, with the support of an adult Leader, choose and run some of the activities themselves using  Go for It! resource packs.
