AT their meeting on Tuesday the Brownies worked enthusiastically in their sixes to make homemade hummus.
After putting together a basic recipe they added flavourings such as peppers and tomatoes, and they tried the different tastes.
The activity was one of the challenges from the Safe Haven badge where the girls have been learning about the issues faced by refugees who find themselves in a foreign country, eg. not finding the ingredients to make the food they are familiar with.
Longdon Brownies planned to hold a pet show in one of their meetings.
They brought along smaller pets in cages – guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits – while larger pets such as dogs came along later with parents, or the girls brought photos of their pets instead.
The most unusual pet was probably the bearded dragon lizard.
One of the mums who works as a vet came to speak to the girls about looking after pets and what to do with stray animals.
She also awarded certificates and rosettes for the pets at the show.
At the next meeting her dog’s three-week-old puppies visited.
Everyone was smitten with them because they were so small and cuddly!
After they left, the girls completed several other activities, such as making up a game based on imitating animals, in order to complete their Friend to Animals badge.
