Angmering Scouts, Cubs, Brownies and Rainbows

On Tuesday 21 June, several AIB members joined the 2nd Angmering Brownies to inspire them to take part in our Beatrix Potter Art Competition. The Girls chose their favourite characters and created pictures.

On Tuesday 19 April, several members returned for an evening with the 2nd Angmering Brownies and their Leader Mel Farrow. The previously sown seedlings were pricked out by the girls into individual pots to be taken home and looked after. The girls were then presented with their Brownie Gardeners Badges.

On Tuesday 15 March, several members spent an enjoyable evening with the 2nd Angmering Brownies and their Leader Mel Farrow. Part of the Brownie Gardeners Badge involves planting a variety of seeds of edible plants. Each girl sowed salad leaf seeds into pots, then had a choice of either pot marigolds or nasturtiums. These were taken home by the girls to be looked after and once the seeds have germinated and the seedlings are larger enough another session will be scheduled to 'prick out' the seeds into individual pots.

 

Back in October 2015, AIB joined the 1st Angmering Brownies and their leader Louise Oliver to plant daffodil bulbs outside the Scout Hut. In Spring 2016 they are giving a lovely display which brightens up the outside of the Scout Hut and Fletchers Field, it is hoped more can be planted for next year.

On Tuesday 17 November, it was a pleasure for us to spend the evening with the Highdown Cubs and their Leader Ian Gaskill, helping them to plant daffodil bulbs into pots. The Cubs took their pots home to look after them until spring, when they will be planted around the Scout Hut.

AIB also carried out an activity highlighting the dangers of using tools and how they should be stored safely, which everyone seemed to enjoy. As this was the first time AIB had worked with these Cubs they were also awarded their AIB badges.

On Tuesday 10 November, it was a pleasure for us to join the 2nd Angmering Brownies, ages 7 - 10 and their Leader Mel Farrow to spend the evening helping them with activities that go towards their Brownie Gardener Badge. This involved planting crocus and hyacinths into pots and an activity to show the effect of weeds when growing seeds.

 

Another activity highlighted the dangers of using tools when in the garden.

 

This year one of the projects carried out with our Youth Groups was planting daffodil bulbs.

 

Members of the Horticultural Society generously raided their sheds for the pots required, Haskins Roundstone Garden Centre provided the compost and AIB funds provided the sacks of daffodil bulbs.

 

On Tuesday 20 October, it was a pleasure for us to join the 2nd Angmering Brownies, ages 7 - 10 and their Leader Mel Farrow to spend the evening planting daffodil bulbs along the Church wall. As it was their last meeting before Haloween the girls came to the session dressed in their haloween outfits.

 

On Wednesday 14 October AIB joined the Highdown Cubs, aged 4 - 7, and their leader Kate Wardle to plant 100 daffodil bulbs into pots. These were taken home by the Cubs to be grown on and will then be returned in the Spring to be planted outside the Scout Hut to commemorate the centenary of the Cub movement in 2016.

On the evening of Thursday 8 October, AIB joined the 1st Angmering Brownies, aged 7 - 10, and their leader Louise Oliver to spend the evening planting daffodil bulbs outside the Scout Hut.

 

On Thursday 8 October, AIB joined the Angmering Rainbows, aged 4 - 7, and their Leader Gill Cox to spend the evening replanting the rainbow trugs with conifers and winter pansies. These were later returned to outside the pram shelter at the Community Centre.
