Pip's Perspective

Pip McKerrow, Region Chief Commissioner

Last weekend I travelled to the farthest sides of our Region to celebrate both the Kent East Big Brownie Birthday 'Starquest', with 1,000 Brownies beside the sea in Margate, and the PGL Marchants Hill in Surrey where lots of Guide and Brownie units from around the Region were enjoying a whole host of adventurous activities. These special occasions held perfect mountain-top moments for brave girls and Leaders who chose to make their Promise on the high trapeze or centre stage at the Winter Gardens. Of course, for some girls making their Promise during the Unit meeting with proud family members watching is their very special moment. Wherever, whenever, and if, members choose to make the Promise I hope that it will be a very memorable occasion for them.

The recent warm sunshine has brought with it a feeling of 'good to be alive-ness', the promise of spring and rebirth. As we come to the welcome end of a particularly wet winter it's a great joy to see our waterlogged region drying out and our natural world blossoming once again. Happy springtime everyone, enjoy the holiday season and a very Happy Easter and Happy Passover to those of you celebrating the religious festivals

One of the patrols in my Guide unit has enjoyed learning the Promise using Makaton sign language as part of the Big Brownie Birthday Challenge. Find the illustrated instructions here. Please note; you will need to log-in to the members’ area to access the link.
