Brownies acting out a trip to Egypt!
Brownies acting out a trip to Egypt!

Coach 3 of the Big Brownie Birthday Eurohop trip arrived safely at the Chateau d’Ebblinghem on Friday evening.  We have travelled from many parts of the UK including Scotland, Lancashire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Hampshire.

We were all together for the first time after a pick up at Gatwick airport and then made our way to the Eurotunnel where the delays were not as bad as we had fear.  Going on a train under the sea was a highlight for many girls and they were very excited to be heading to France, especially for the ones who had never left the UK before.

At the Chateau we quickly found our rooms and then had dinner, and the Brownies were very relieved it was ‘normal’ food!!  After dinner we played some games so the Brownies could get to know girls from other units and also find out a bit more about Brownies and Guides all over the world! Then we headed to bed (but maybe not to sleep straight away!) ready for our exciting day tomorrow.
