Sundown and the Coronation

Sundown Adventureland

On Saturday 22nd April over 230 Rainbows, Brownies and volunteers from Girlguiding South Yorkshire descended on Sundown Adventureland for a Funday enjoying the rides and attractions and a “sing song” at lunchtime.

We have some spare Sundown Badges available to buy on the County Website if anyone would like some extras.

Celebrating the Coronation

9th and 39th Rotherham Brownies in Rother Valley Division enjoyed a coronation craft evening sponsored by Nisa with a Grant for £500 towards crafts and gifts.

54th and 29th Doncaster Rainbows, 54th, 17th and 29th Doncaster Brownies, 54th and 28th Doncaster Guides in Doncaster North Division were fortunate to receive a grant from Sprotbrough and Cusworth Parish Council. They split this grant and each unit held their own tea party in celebration of the Coronation. Lots of tea, cakes and fun games were had by all. The King was knitted by one of the unit leaders!

15th Doncaster Brownies in Doncaster North Division proudly painted 4 GIANT banners to celebrate the Coronation and hung them around the Villages to celebrate the occasion with others. They have received fabulous compliments from local residents on their involvement and celebration of the Coronation.

23rd Doncaster (1st Carcroft) Rainbows, Brownies and Guides in Doncaster North Division came together and were joined by the County Commissioner, Janet Cain, and one of the Deputy Lieutenants of South Yorkshire, Charles Warde-Adlam, who is a representative of the King in South Yorkshire. The girls made or renewed their promise to the King with parents watching on and afterwards had an afternoon tea followed by games and activities.

The 66th Doncaster units in Doncaster South made Crowns and also learnt how to sign the National Anthem using British Sign Language.
