Firelighting Course

Keen to get leaders back outside with their girls, the folks at Paxwood offered a firelighting course for new and inexperienced leaders, or those who have lost confidence during Covid.  They were invited to come with or without a few girls, and some experienced leaders were available for support and encouragement – of which I was one!

I was very impressed with the Brownies’ wood pile; small but beautifully formed:

Later on they offered me a toasted wrap.  Rather more toasted than perhaps ideal, but I was hungry so it was welcome.  It contained strawberries, slices of banana and some marshmallows which melted goo-ily.  I’d not seen wraps cooked on the fire before, so there is always something new to learn even for old hands like me!
