Guides, Brownies and Rainbows

2nd Banbury Rainbows

Any girl between the ages of 5 and 7 years can become a Rainbow Guide. Rainbow Guides are the youngest members of the Guide Association. Each unit has two adult leaders plus helpers and we work as a unit and in small groups for activities. We have fun and enjoy making things, cooking, listening to stories, singing, playing games, being out of doors and meeting people. Each Rainbow pays a subscription at the beginning of each new term, which covers the cost of equipment and the annual Guide Association membership to guide headquarters.

2nd Banbury Brownies

Any girl between the ages of 7 and 10 can become a Brownie, providing she is able to understand and is willing to make the Brownie Guide Promise. Brownies follow a planned program of activities which aim to be both enjoyable and constructive. This wide range of activities encourages the girls to meet challenges and work for interest badges.

Each pack has at least two adult leaders, plus helpers and a choice of official uniforms. The Brownies are grouped into sixes which gives them an instant group of friends. Each Brownie pack pays a pack subscription at the beginning of each term, this covers the cost of insurance, equipment, badges, a donation in lieu of rent and the Annual Guide Association membership to Guide H.Q. We are invited to join the other uniform groups at special Church family Services 3 times a year.

2nd Banbury Guides

The Guides have reformed this year and meet weekly at the Church.
