Brownies from Driffield Rural District recently gathered at Guideacres for a special Sixer and Seconder camp. However it was an extra special occasion for one Nafferton Brownie, Sarah King. At the camp Sarah finished off her final Brownie badge meaning that she had completed every badge in the Brownie book – over 55 badges in total. To earn a badge, a girl needs to complete a set of tasks and often learn some specific things. Brownie leader, Helen Jackson, said “I have been a leader for nearly ten years and Sarah is our first ever Brownie to complete all the badges. It is a huge achievement and testimony to Sarah’s hard work and enthusiasm. We are all really proud of her”
Sarah said “I like going to Brownies and spending time with my friends. You get to try all sorts of new things. I really enjoyed camping and the activities that we did.”
11 other girls joined Sarah on the District Camp and learnt essential outdoor skills, took part in traditional wide games and thought about how they could improve team work in their Sixes. The camp was extremely successful with Katie from Hutton Cranswick Brownies summing it up by saying “I liked absolutely everything!”
