Cotswold North Rainbows

July saw some of the Rainbows from the Division join Rainbows from all over Gloucestershire at County Badge Day at Deer Park, Cowley.

There were 3 badges on offer during the morning session – Drawing, Family Tree and Nature. During the afternoon a lot of fun was had just across the road on Bubbs Hill where they all tried Grass sledging, Tunnelling, Archery, Giant Bubble blowing, a Stamp Trail and some Parachute games – Cotswold North Rainbows started a trend of rolling down the big hill! 

Various fun things have been happening within our Division Units, from Random Acts of Kindness, a visit to Batsford Arboretum to complete their British Tree Badge to taking part in many  Skills Builder Activities.

Moreton-in-Marsh Rainbows have been invited to visit their Fire Station during the holidays to learn about Fire Safety.

Gloucestershire Girlguiding will be having a promotional stand at Moreton Show on September 7th so if you are there please come and find us in the family area and find out how to join us or become a volunteer.

Fundraising Duck Day

Cotswold North Division Rainbows

On Sunday May 5th we held a very successful ‘Duck’ themed fundraising event at The Victoria Hall in Bourton on the Water to fund future Rainbows activities.

We sold Duck 70 duck themed Quiz sheets prior to the event, there was a decorated duck competition, open to all, where yellow plastic ducks on a paper plate were sold beforehand for £1 and returned, adorned with many colourful items, on beautiful artistic plates. The judging task, carried out by Tina and Herman from Warwickshire was a very difficult one, as we had over 50 entries, split into 4 different age groups. The Under 7 class was won by Cayson, the 7-10 class was won by Saga-Mae the 11-15 class was won by James and the over 16 age group by Kathleen. The overall Champion decorated duck was won by Elissa from Moreton-in-Marsh Brownies.

An exhibition of all the ducks was viewed and complimented by many people between 11am and 3pm and lots of donations were collected.

We also had a very popular Hook a Duck game with lots of prizes, a Duck Hoopla, a drop a coin on a Duck game, and a well supported duck craft and colouring table.

We sold lots of rainbow coloured duck shaped biscuits, duck themed cupcakes and crocheted duck badges. We will remain very grateful to the people from and the tourists in Bourton-on-the-Water that day who helped us to raise an amazing £257:31.

We also received some enquiries about girls wishing to join Rainbows.

Please visit the Girlguiding website if you are interested in becoming a volunteer or you have a 5-7 year old who like to come and join in the fun that we have in Cotswold North Division.
