The girls enjoyed talks from the staff on a variety of animals ranging from reptiles to guinea-pigs and rabbits. Time was given afterwards for them to ask questions and handle some of the animals.

A game of supermarket sweep was particularly enjoyed, and allowed the Brownies to ‘sweep’ the store looking for and picking up items they would want on their shopping lists.
