Winter Wonderland 2015

Over the weekend of 12th-13th December 1000 Rainbows and Brownies from all corners of GMW visited Winter Wonderland at Ashley. Even the rain couldn’t dampen the high spirits and good times that were had by all.

We enjoyed a Disney Princess Sing-a-long

The girls had a visit from the lovely Elsa and Ana who led them in a ‘Frozen’ and Disney Princess themed sing-a-long. Renditions of ‘Let it Go’ could be heard around the Activity Centre!

We played at the Fairground

Whilst waiting to visit Santa, the girls had the opportunity to have a go on two fairground rides; a Disney train and a swing ride – which proved to be very popular!

We visited Santa

Ashley Lodge was transformed into a very festive Santa’s Grotto. With the help of Santa’s fantastic Elf Assistants, the girls got to write letters to Santa, sang some Christmas songs by the Christmas tree and visited Santa where they could tell him what they would like for Christmas and receive a gift.

We created wonderful Christmas decorations

In the Brownie House each girl made a spangly, snowy, glow in the dark bauble to take home in their themed day sack where they could also store their gift from Santa.

We sang at the campfire

Outside, round a roaring fire there were rousing renditions of Alice the…. Reindeer and several penguins came to tea whilst girls made gooey S’mores and warmed their hands.

We danced and had fun at the disco

The Rainbows and Brownies with their Leaders put on their dancing wellies at the disco and warmed up with a cup of hot chocolate.

A massive thank you to the organising team and all volunteers over the weekend, without whom this magical event would not have been possible!
