Pack of the Month!

1 April 2014

The first of every month has been designated for a local pack to take over the homepage of WAGGGS! We will pick a Pack of the Month to showcase, and ask others to put their pack forward to be our next Pack of the Month!

This month, we would like to showcase the 1st Mildmay Brownies in Islington, London , part of Girlguding UK. They are one and a half years old as a pack, and have four sixes: The Pixies, The Elves, The Gnomes and the Sprites, and four Owls. They also have a number of small Girl Guides troop of their own. They are looking forward to celebrating the Big Brownie Birthday this year and have plans to go on a sleepover, create their own website and have a party. Some of them want to go to Space as well!

As part of the pack of the week, the World Association asked them a series of questions. Here are their answers!
