Bishopton Brownies have been running for over 40 years. We take girls from age 7 to 10, from anywhere in the Stratford area.
We meet at the Community Centre in Drayton Avenue on a Thursday evening from 6 pm – 7.15 pm, term time only.
We run a varied programme which includes everything from cooking to climbing. We also have an annual Brownie holiday.
Caroline has been involved in Guiding in Stratford from the age of 7. After a break in her twenties, she qualified as a Guider in 2014. Caroline also holds her Going Away Licence for Brownies, which enables her to take Brownies on residential trips. She has also recently taken on the role of joint District Commissioner for Stratford District.
Kirsty qualified as a Guider in 2018 & is our First Aider on our annual holiday.
