New Year New Home

First meeting of 2016 and we moved into our new permanent home.

It's 11 years since we started the pack and for the first 10 years we met at the local school. While they were undergoing building work that temporarily cut down the size of the meeting space we moved out to the Scout Hut where many of our Brownies' brothers attend - along with my own son!

They made us very welcome and we had an enjoyable year there, with storage space, kitchen access, it was great. However, the meeting space, while local, is outside of our district so was never a permanent solution for us.

As well as the possibility of returning to the school, a community hall was being built so we considered both for our return and the hall won out - we have storage which the school just can't offer as they need the space themselves, and we have kitchen access for drinks and some simple cooking.

So, last night we moved into our new home and held a drop in meeting so that the girls and families could visit but we could also use the time to get to know the new space. We used the time for badge testing, Children's University passport stamping, and answering any questions parents had. More than 30 badges passed, more than 50 hours stamped, and lots of questions answered!

Here's to 2016!
