Young People's Activities

The nature of our local geography means that not every village can offer every possible activity for all ages, but in this "triangle" of North Cornwall we are very fortunate as in St Breward we have the meeting place for the Guides and Brownies (and we hope that following the recent piece in the Cornish Guardian we will soon have Rainbows up and running) and in St Mabyn there is the Scout Hut, for Beavers (ages 6-8), Cubs and Scouts. Great news that the new extension to house toilets is almost complete, following much hard work and applications for grants. (Contact Jana 01208-815418 for Beavers)
The Girl Guides enjoyed an active summer camping in the New Forest and trying out new activities like falconry, outdoor adventures, especially the high ropes in the forest! and water sports such as canoeing and rafting. Next summer they look forward to the Guides and Scouts Jamboree at Windsor Castle, where there will be 4,500 10-25 year olds.Meanwhile they look forward to a year packed with the activities which they all love. Guides is for girls aged 10-14 and are actively seeking some volunteer leaders to help set up the Rangers which all the present Guides would like to follow on to after they reach 14. Thy have recently been joined by some Brownies who have "graduated", thus creating some much needed spaces. There is no shortage of eager 5-7 year olds looking for a Rainbow Group, but what they need is some volunteer leaders. Guide Leader Jill Jeffs is a Joint District Commissioner and she urges young women of 18+ to give it a try and bolster their CV at the same time. "My involvement with the Guides, and the training which I receive as part of it has always gone down very well in job interviews and it really does offer a lot of enjoyment too" Ring Jill on 01840-212497 for Guides (you don't have to have been a Brownie to join!) and Snowy Owl Kathrynh Tiplady 01208-850185 for Brownies)

Young Farmers! There is an active Club in St Mabyn which always welcomes new members (and you don't actually have to have a farming background!).They meet on Friday evenings in the Village Hall at 7.30pm Secretary Amanda Harris 01208-851027 will be pleased to hear from anyone between aged between 16-25 interested in going along.
