Village Voice

Village Voice April/May 2018 CLUBS & SOCIETIES Guides, Brownies & Rainbows This half term, Rainbows have welcomed a number of new girls to the unit and a new volunteer helper. One of their first activities was to do a portrait of one of their new friends. The portraits were great. They also completed their first challenge badge of 2018 to celebrate Chinese New Year! They had to complete four challenges. The first challenge was to make “happy” envelopes where everybody wrote little notes to each other. Then there was: Pin the tail on the dog; Chinese fans and finally to complete the challenge they ate Chinese food! 1st Brownies have been very busy since January. The girls have enjoyed completing their designer badge. They enjoyed an indoor camp fire with hot chocolate and marshmallows where they had great fun cooking chocolate brownies! The girls have also been busy with craft activities and are looking forward to making Mother’s Day and Easter decorations. The Guides as well as Trefoil Guild (adult guiding) are taking part in the Trefoil 75th Birthday Challenge. There are 7 clauses and for one challenge the Guides invited members of Trefoil to their meeting to talk about their time in Guiding. Many memories and photos were shown to the Guides. Some of the other challenges for the Guides include an evening making mocktails and sewing a corsage. Adult Guiding had an inspiring talk from a Guide Leader and her daughter who had visited the Guide World Centre in Sangham, India. Both wore the national costume and the members sung and played a game they had learnt from Guiders around the world - a wonderful experience that Guiding offers to its members. This was also part of the 75th Birthday Challenge and the celebration of Thinking Day on 22nd February when we remember 10 million members in the world in 145 Countries. Sue Stephens P&TG Scout Group The group is always on the lookout for helpers. We really do need some new people. I am sure there are people out there in Penn & Tylers Green and beyond who would be just right but don’t know it yet. If you know someone who 32

you think would be good, please give them a nudge, that may be all they are waiting for. Being a helper or leader is a very rewarding role. Like new helpers we are always looking for new youngsters to join the group. Be that as a beaver, cub or scout. Please contact us and an application to join can be requested. Jumble. Look out for our Spring Jumble Sale on Saturday 21st April at the Village Hall. Doors open at 1.00 pm (open Friday evening for receiving jumble 6.00pm to 9.00pm). If anyone can spare some time Friday or Saturday we would really appreciate your help. Please see posters around the village nearer the time. We hope to see loads of keen bargain hunters on the day. It is always a good sale with loads of high quality “jumble”. Paul Wicks, 07879 66824,, www.facebook. com/26thHighWycombeScouts Morning WI During February we enjoyed a fish and chip lunch at the Horse and Jockey, and weather permitting hope to have another craft meeting when, if any homework has been done our pieces of embroidery could be framed into cards or perhaps do some decoupage. Our speaker will talk about the history of the Windsor chair. In March learnt all about the working of the RNLI, how they started and stories of some of their rescues. In April, Chenies Manor will be the topic of our meeting. Should any of these speakers interest you and you would like to come to one of our meetings you will be most welcome. We meet at the P&TG Sports and Social Club on the third Wednesday of the month, 10am for 10.15am. Sheila Sparrow, 812163 Evening WI The Evening WI March speaker. subject was Royal Weddings so we will be well informed ready for the next Royal Wedding in May. Our April talk is entitled ' Bagels and Bacon'. Our recent Craft Fair was a resounding success and the profit we make from this and Village Voice April/May 2018 other ventures allows us to regularly enjoy various speakers at our monthly meetings. Thank you to all who came to support us. Our social calendar is starting to fill up with outings organised by the County Federation and also with those we arrange for our own WI. Enthusiast members request and suggest suitable visits and a good time is had by all. Several of our members will soon be participating in the popular Lane End WI quiz which is a friendly, fun evening with a delicious supper to add to the enjoyment. We have a healthy number of members but there is always room for more. Why not come and see if this could be the group for you? Pat Hedley, 812645 Village Care Village Care is the Penn & Tylers Green volunteer taxi service, provided solely by volunteers from our area: without volunteer drivers and telephonists we would collapse.
