Burghfield Common Scarecrow Trail

Get involved in the Burghfield Common Scarecrow Trail over half term!

Now in its 5th year, it's become one of the most popular annual community events and has raised the profile of Girlguiding in the village. This year's trail has 27 scarecrows with the theme 'Fairytales and Fables'.
So come along and show your support - there are two local units entering scarecrows and both need your votes.

Kintbury Brownies at the May Fair


Over the bank holiday weekend, 1st Kintbury Brownies ran a craft table at the Kintbury May Fair.

Members of the unit and visitors to the stall also contributed to a ‘Girls can’ board, and the unit paid for their pitch by making cakes for the organisers to sell.



The Brownies also met the Green Man, whose costume now includes a ‘Girls can’ badge! Great work, girls – we hope you had a great time.


Comments on the 'Girls can' board included:
Be zoologists
Do DIY and use electrical tools
Be leaders
Be happy!
