I've become a helper for the local group..... I say local, the meeting is in the church hall about 2 mins walk from my house!!! I've been thinking of joining since last summer when a customer was telling me they needed helpers desperately. I wanted to do crafts with them as I think it's really important to pass these things on.
So having finally got my act together I went on Tuesday..... I was never in the Brownies as a child so had no idea what went on. I was hoping to become 'brown owl' but since the big shake up years ago things have changed a lot. My group has decide to call the helpers names from Winne the pooh ...... so I'm called 'Eeyore' !!!! Not sure about that..... they don't wear the brown dresses anymore & they don't have the lovely purse.........mmmmmm maybe I need to re think this!!!! There's only 9 children & 3 adults....... they would like more children but people aren't joining ..... it does cost a lot of money.
