Guides Report to General Church Meeting

We once again have had a busy and hectic year. We currently have 35 girls, 4 leaders and a unit helper, and I can say without doubt that both the girls and the leaders have all had a lot of fun!

Some highlights from our year have been….
Having numerous girls attend 3 camps – Badge weekend, Survival Camp and SCAMPS camp (even though we did have to decamp at Scamps due to a horrendous storm that flooded the site!) and a ‘sleepover’ at church – not that we got much sleep. Attending the Armature Dramatic Panto at the little theatre Completing numerous badges, including Recycled Fashion Go for It, Circus skills, Health and Well-being and Free Being Me. Attending Flamingofling, at Flamingo Land, alongside 5,500 other Rainbow, Brownies, Guides, Seniors and Leaders from across North East England! Bring Your Mum to Guides Night – and boy did we throw the mums in at the deep end! Marshmallow tower building, a Guiding alphaspagetti crossword, and blindfold Jam sandwich making! Circle dancing wit…

Thank you to Avis and her team and to the children - we love to see your artwork in the corridors and coffee lounge.

Extend Exercise Report to General Church Meeting

Number of Members ranging from 8-13 depending on appointments etc and because of age group how they are feeling on the day.The group has built, people coming are regulars, new members have come back.Very friendly group.Sad to have lost a few members due to bereavement but the group has kept going no matter how many members. The group means a lot to me; it's not just about money as I have done this class at a loss. I love my work and members.  Lovely to see them meeting new friends and having quality times.

Best wishes Sue x

BabyBallet - Report to General Church Meeting

On behalf of all our students and staff at babyballet® Bradford North I would like to thank you, the church, and all its volunteers for running the cafĂ© on a Saturday morning. It has proven very popular and encouraged our classes to grow to 4 in the morning, seeing 38 students each week.

The hall is always well clean, warm and welcoming for our little ones.

As a dance school we did our first show, for which we rehearsed in your hall and it was a great success, much enjoyed by all that took part and watched. We are planning another one for this year in June.
