We are lucky to now have both Brownie and Rainbow units in the village.

1st Hammerton with Whixley Brownies meets weekly on Monday evenings during term
time. Brownies is for girls aged seven to ten. The girls undertake their Brownie Adventure
participating in the world of exciting opportunities, challenges and fun that is Brownies.

Recently we have visited Harrogate fire station and worked on our fire safety badges, held
a Jubilee Garden party, made finger puppets and performed a puppet show to parents,
became fashion designers for the night and held a fashion show, gone on a scavenger hunt,
attended a cooking and craft day with other Brownies from Harrogate & Knaresborough plus
much, much more.

Many of our Brownies choose to work towards Brownie Interest badges covering many
different hobbies and activities from Science investigator to Circus skills. The most popular
ones with our Brownies are Dancer, Swimmer, Swimmer Advance, Toymaker, Book Lover,
Musician & Cook.

1st Hammerton with Whixley Rainbows meets weekly on Wednesday evenings during
term time. Rainbows is for girls aged five to seven. Being a Rainbow is all about learning,
developing self-confidence, building friendships and, of course, having lots of fun! We do
all sorts of activities. As we are a new unit (we opened in September 2012) over the past
term we have been learning about Rainbows, getting to know each other and of course
celebrating Christmas. We also had our first ever Promise Party where eight Rainbows
made their promise all together.
