Sandra McNeill, Leader of Heptonstall Brownies has been in touch……
“After 15+ years of being a leader at Heptonstall Brownies, myself and Teresa Batist have decided to hand over the reins to Angie Mossman and Melissa King. Both have been helping out and gradually taking over the unit for the last 18 months so we know we are passing on our incredibly popular unit to two very keen and capable people.
The unit meets term time at Heptonstall School Thursdays 6.30-7.45. We all consider running the Brownie sessions a great chance to wind down from our usual daily jobs, get all the training needed, meet new friends and it looks great on a CV!
However, this means that the unit cannot run without at least one more adult helper, preferably two (Girl Guiding rules insist on a 1:8 ratio). It also means with four adults that at any week that one leader needs to be away, there isn’t a problem. Also of course, the behind the scenes work is then shared!
I have promised to continue to do the accounts for the unit at least for now, but would also like to pass this on if any one would feel able to take over this role.
If anyone out there (aged 18+) would like to know more about helping at the unit please contact me by email . Without at least one more person the unit faces closure or at the very least, regular cancelled sessions.
