Lo­cal brown­ies and guides make Easter gar­dens

The Galloway News - - SCHOOL NEWS -

STU­ART GILLE­SPIE Kirkcud­bright Brown­ies and Guides joined to­gether for their last meet­ing be­fore Easter.

They made Easter gar­dens out of fo­liage and nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als to show the Easter story.

Daniel Rim­ming, the new church youth worker, went along to talk to them about Je­sus’ death and res­ur­rec­tion and judge the best gar­den.

He found it hard work as the girls had all con­structed won­der­ful gar­dens but awarded the Fair­trade Easter Egg to Si­enna.

He said: “I liked the way she had used a co­conut shell to cre­ate Je­sus’ tomb.”

It was a mem­o­rable meet­ing for another rea­son as it in­cluded a prom­ise cer­e­mony. One Brownie, Tanya, two Guides, Carly and Molly, and the Brownie leader, Drostie all made their Guid­ing prom­ise.

Guide leader Katherine said: “It was an en­joy­able meet­ing. The girls learned about Easter in a fun and cre­ative way and it was lovely that Brown­ies and Guides could make their prom­ise at the same time.”
