The 8th & 9th South Shields (St. Michael's) Brownies

Hi All 

Many thanks for your generous support for Children in Need last Monday eve!  Also, thank you to the cake providers!  They were greatly appreciated!  We raised £72.00!  If you forgot to send your £2.00 in please bring this Monday night! 

Couple of reminders : Remember to keep watering your hyacinth bulbs.   Bring them out into the light at the end of this month and then they should be ready for Christmas! 

Church Christmas Fayre Saturday 29/11 1pm 
Brownies are not having their own stall but myself & Baby Brown Owl as members of the Choir are having a bottle stall & jewellery stall!  So, if you have any un-opened/new bottle of toiletries, perfume, alcohol, sauces etc we would be most grateful for any donations. 

Baby Brown Owl will accept any jewellery, broken, used or new as she has the tools to fix/create jewellery and will be doing this on the day. You can also visit Santa in his Grotto upstairs!  Tea/coffee & lunch will be served plus the customary Raffle. Other stalls include cakes, toys, books, bric-a-brac which if you would like to have a clear out over half-term, we can store these items in church when the girls come back to Brownies.  Also we will recycle any CD’s, DVD’s, books, mobile phones, laptops, tablets etc via ZAPPER to raise funds for church and ourselves.  Have an Autumn clear out ready for Christmas!! 

Monday 1/12 – meet at Guide HQ, Westoe Road 6-7.30pm
We would like to make a glittery Christmas craft so will be meeting at Guide HQ on this date.
