The 1st Fairwater Rainbows group in Blenheim/St Dials has ten spaces available for girls aged 5-6. Rainbows is the youngest age group in the Girlguiding movement.
What are the Rainbows?
This info is from the Girlguiding website:
Rainbows learn by doing – they get their hands dirty, do sports, arts and crafts and play games. Being a Rainbow is all about having the space to try new things. Through taking part in a range of different activities with girls their own age, Rainbows develop self-confidence and make lots of new friends.
