Wreath Making Challenge

After seeing the advert for a funding opportunity through the Big Ideas Unremembered Wreath challenge in February’s Borderlines, my Brownie unit have entered a wreath into the competition.

We hope that it may be selected to be used at a commemorative service where Heads of Commonwealth countries will lay wreaths in honour of the men who formed part of the commonwealth Labour Corps.

The photo shows the wreath we submitted.

Splash days 2018

This year’s splash dates are 13 May, 03 June, 17 June, 01 July (full) and 16 Sept.(full)

Unfortunately we have had to reduce the numbers for each splash day as wehave insufficient instrustors. See last paragraph below!

The application form is now available. Any day is for all age groups except Rainbows.

2018 Splash Booking Form

Early booking is recommended.

The Tatton Water Team are looking for new volunteers. If you’d enjoy encouraging girls to grow through outdoor water based activities please contact us. Qualifications not necessary as training can be arranged.
The team also require an administrator to receive booking requests, send out details to booked Guide/Brownie groups and manage booking payments. This would take a few hours during Feb/March/April and then a short time each week before a Splash day to collate last minute changes.
If able to help please contact :

3rd Poynton Rangers and 1st Poynton Guides enjoy Switzerland 2017

A once in a life time trip to Switzerland

20 members of 3rd Poynton Rangers and 1st Poynton Guides enjoyed a once in a life time trip to Switzerland staying in a chalet amidst breath taking views in Adleboden.

The group , led by six Leaders, spent a week visiting the fantastic sites of Switzerland including Oeschinen lake where they also whizzed down the mountain on the 750 ft Toboggan run, Trümmelbach falls, a series of 10 natural glacier waterfalls inside a cave, a beautiful river cruise on the picturesque river Thun, a visit to the international Scout centre in Kandesteg and a exhilarating afternoon in an adventure park where they zoomed across zip lines over a river which got higher until the last challenge which was a jump off a bridge! And even a trip to the top of a mountain to watch how cheese is made!


Everyone had a fantastic time, including the seven year old Brownie who also came. A highlight of the trip for all was a visit to Our Chalet, one of the Girl Guiding World Centres.

A huge thanks to all our parents, friends and family who supported the fundraising for the trip and to the Leaders who led the trip.

Next stop, Sangam, the World Centre in India!
