Garrowhill Brownie Pack celebrates its 50th birthday!


Poppy Scotland volunteer

The 354th Glasgow Brownie Pack is celebrating its 50th birthday on 11th March. Initially called the 2nd Garrowhill Pack, it started as the 1st Pack was overflowing - only twenty-four Brownies were allowed and they had

fifty-two!


Garrowhill Primary School has been their home on a Monday night for all of these years.


During their fifty years they have seen changes in uniform, programme, promise and leaders but what has never changed is the enthusiasm of the Brownies. They still love playing games, gaining badges, working in Sixes, going for trips and the highlight is usually the Pack holiday. These holidays used to be for a week with the furthest being in Kirkwhelpington, Northumberland. Now it is more likely to be a weekend at Gartocharn (their local campsite in Balloch) but it is still every bit as enjoyable.


Were you a Brownie? Did you go on any of the Pack holidays? Do you have any memories of things you did in the Brownies - from kite flying festivals, banner making, singing games competitions, day trips to Troon when you brought back a goldfish, favourite songs or games? If so, the 354th Brownie Pack would love to hear from you!
