Welcome to 1st Coaley Brownies


Coaley is a small village near Dursley in Gloucestershire. We all wear the County Lion Badge on our uniform to show which county we come from. Coaley Brownies is one of the units that makes up Girlguiding Dursley District and we love to get together with the other units in the District for all sorts of events.

 

Dursley District is part of Gloucestershire West Division. This is our Division standard which is a flag that the Guiders carry on special occasions for the Division, like our Division AGM or a Regional Thinking Day event.

 



Outside the Meeting Place
Other than our weekly meetings Coaley Brownies love to get out and about as often as we can. We have taken part in visits to WWT Slimbridge, Longleat, Legoland, and even a weekend away at Disneyland Paris.
 
Holidays/Sleepovers
We hold our annual Pack Holiday each year, usually in the May half term. We take 9 girls from Coaley Brownies and 9 girls from 1st Cam Brownies away for 5 days. We always base our holidays around a theme, our latest theme for May 2013 was 'Peter Pan'.
 
We also like to hold sleepovers locally, usually in the village hall that we meet in. We try and hold them once a year.
What are Brownies?
Brownies are members of Girlguiding UK aged between 7 & 10. Each Brownie belongs to a Brownie pack and they usually get together regularly. For more detailed information about Brownies or any of the other Guiding sections visit the Girlguiding website.
 
Our Meetings
We meet in Coaley Village Hall once a week during term time. We like to play games, make things, and anything else that the girls can think of that sounds like fun. Ultimately, Coaley Brownies have fun!
 
The Brownie Promise & Law
All members of Guiding throughout the world share a commitment to a common standard. The UK Brownie Promise is:
I promise that I will do my best:
To be true to myself and develop my beliefs,
To serve the Queen and my community,
To help other people
and
To keep the Brownie Guide Law.  

 
The Brownie Guide Law is: A Brownie Guide thinks of others before herself and does a good turn every day.
