A Brownie Wonderland


The 1st RAF Marham Brownies have had a fun packed year so far keeping busy with challenges, days out, crafts, cooking and even a sleepover!

The beginning of the year saw them practising hard for their annual production which this year was ‘A Brownie Wonderland’. The girls helped make the scenery and learned new songs ready for their performance which was enjoyed by families, friends and some invited guests from the Station.

The money raised from the production went towards the Brownies summer trip to Africa Alive in Lowestoft. The weather held out for a fantastic day at the wildlife park where the girls met many of the animals with Isabella being used as a perch by one of the friendly ring-tailed Lima’s. The highlight for many of the girls was watching the fantastic Zulu Warriors who enthralled the audience with their African Chants and Dance. Before they finished the girls were invited up to join in with one of the dances. The day didn’t finish then though, it continued back at the Sandringham Centre with a sleepover followed with crafts and games the following day.

The four sixer’s also recently attended a sixer weekend at the Bidwell Centre in Thetford where they met up with other sixer’s from packs across the region.

The girls are now half way through this terms challenge badge based on the Wizard of Oz. They have made ruby slippers, had a ‘Toto’ dog show, made crafts and had great fun with the Great Oz Bake Off where each six made their own cakes which were judged for appearance and taste. The challenge will continue after half term with lots of activities planned. All the brownies are looking forward to their next trip to the Panto in Kings Lynn at the beginning of December.
