Rainbows/ brownie groups

Postby EmmaF » Sun Mar 02, 2014 2:49 pm

I'm after some recommendations/ advice on local rainbows / brownie groups to consider for my near 5 year old daughter in either chorlton or whalley range. I've some knowledge of the beaver / cub groups in the area, longford park, buckingham road and Brantingham road but would be interested to know about the mix of boys/ girls in these groups for beavers and cubs for a potential girl member.
The only rainbow/ brownie group I've heard of is at st clements and I've heard there is a huge waiting list, though not sure how long ? Does anyone know if there any other local rainbow/ brownie groups ?
Many thanks

Not sure about the Rainbows / Brownies, Emma, but I think there are still quite a few local Woodcraft groups if you're interested.

Boys and girls, various age bands, kind of socialist / co-operative brownies. Hope that doesn't put you off. My knowledge isn't up to date but the group my daughter went to in Whalley Range years ago was lovely. They don't actually DO woodcraft, and they have never had any religious affiliation or requirement, which is a big plus imo.

Thanks Pearl. I'd heard of Woodcraft folk existing out levenshulme way but didn't realise chorlton/ whalley range had a group of its own as none of my kids friends have mentioned it before.

Would be interested to hear if anyone out there has kids who have been more recently.

Hi there is a rainbows group in Didsbury.

There is Brownies at St Clements church in Chorlton they are on a Wednesday ( or they certainly used to be when my sister ran them but don't quote me on that).
