What do girls say about Brownies?
'At Brownies we make loads of friends, and we play games, and we celebrate different cultures. Like during a Jewish festival, we ate apples and honey, which actually tasted really nice!'

'It feels nice to be part of a group of girls who help each other and are friendly. It makes me feel special. I'd hate there to be boys at Brownies!'
