Would you like your Daughter to Join a Local village brownie or Guide Group?

At the moment there are some places for girls at Ombersley village Brownies and Guides.

Do you know what Brownie is all about?

BROWNIES is our section for girls aged seven to ten.

Through regular meetings, special events, day trips, sleepovers, camps and holidays, Brownies learn new hobbies, play music, explore other cultures and get adventurous outdoors. Girls can also extend their knowledge and abilities by working towards Brownie interest badges covering many different hobbies and activities from Science investigator to Circus skills.

Brownies become a member of a Six, a unit with a name such as Badger, Fox, Mole, Squirrel, Hedgehog or Rabbit, and follow a programme called the Brownie Adventure.

The name reflects the world of exciting opportunities, challenges and fun that is Brownies.

Ombersley Brownies meet at the Guide hut (behind Ombersley Village Hall) on a Wednesday evening from 6pm to 7.15pm.


If you are interested, please email;

Or just pop along to see what Brownies are all about on a Wednesday evening to meet Brown Owl.

GUIDES is our section for girls aged 10 to 14.

By becoming part of a worldwide community of girls who learn together and share skills and experiences, Guides have the chance to get out there and do something really different.

Members take part in a wide range of exciting activities at their regular meetings, and at special events or holidays. Girls can get involved in anything from adventure sports to performing arts, travel and taking part in community action projects.

Guides work together in small groups or 'Patrols' and, with the support of an adult Leader, choose and run some of the activities themselves using Go for It! resource packs.


The Guide programme is divided into five areas:

  • discovery of new experiences and challenges

  • healthy lifestyles

  • global awareness

  • skills and relationships

  • celebrating diversity.

Girls can extend their knowledge and skills by working towards Guide interest badges covering many different hobbies and activities from Film lover to Independent living. They can also gain Challenge badges that recognise their participation in guiding over a period of time. The badges build towards the Baden-Powell Challenge Award, named in honour of the founder of guiding.


Ombersley Guides meet after the Brownies on a Wednesday evening at the Guide Hut (Behind Ombersley Village Hall) from 7.15pm to 8.30pm.

If your daughter would be interested in joining guides, please pop along to meet the Leaders on a Wednesday or email;


Look forwards to seeing you and your Daughter.
