Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

The game of STREETS and ALLEYS is hillarious


All players except two stand in several parallel lines making ranks and files with four

or more players in each. These lines should be far enough apart so players in one can

just clasp hands with their neighbours in the next one either way. The two extra

players act as thief and policeman. The players join hands across ranks, forming

streets. Then the thief runs and the policeman tries to catch him. When the leader

says, ‘Right turn’ the players face right and join hands along the file, forming ‘alleys’

at right angles to the ‘streets’. To make the game lively, the command to change from

street to alley should be given often. The thief and the policeman must keep to the

streets and alleys. They are not permitted to break through the joined hands nor to go

under them. When the policeman catches the thief, two other players take their places

and the former thief and policeman step into the places left vacant.

Family BBQ’s are just for fun

A few years ago the Units held Family get together’s.  This meant that the parents could meat and great each other.  Instead of being so and so’s mum or dad they met someone with a name!

These Family BBQ’s were quite successful for a while.  Being run once every two terms proved better than every term.  So in the middle of the first and third terms a night was chosen and things were arranged.

  • Advocacy, Governance and ownership by all levels of Guiding within this District.
  • No special agenda just good food and friendship.  Not a political evening. But a good way of quietly providing an avenue where parents and friends could be included and of assistance.
  • The Guides who could attend had an increase in their self confidence as their parents and families are important enough to be invited and come to a District function.  The mind set of having parents involved offered a protection around the guides attending.
  • The Guides attending quietly showcased their talents and skills learned through the night.
  • Risk annalysises were completed
  • Hostessed by the District Leader and the District team divided the work load.  Of course offers of help were taken up be they from Guides, the parents or family friends.
  • The District Team got together to divided the jobs.
  • Invites were sent out one month in advance.
  • The RSPA was two weeks before the date set.
  • Parents received reminder notices via face book and twitter as the evening approached..
  • Membership tended to increase as the public interest hightened.

Using the CD player.

There is a CD player where we meet. As long as the Guides organising the music show one of the leaders the C.D’s before the CD player is used then it may be used in different activities.

Even played during the meeting time if they agree.

NOTE: All the CD operators need to have their Occupational Health and Safety checks by Debbie first.
