Blyth Brownies shake their ingredients as they make ice cream.

Brownies from Blyth might have been feeling the temperature and in need of cooling down, but there was nothing hot-headed about the activity they were undertaking.

Planned with the help of group leader Shirley Manton, the girls made ice cream, the ingredients for which needed lots of shaking in an ice filled bag.

“All members of Girlguiding promise to keep to its principle of helping others and to remind the Brownies of this, we matched activities to the letters of the word promise,” she said.

The last three letters, i, s and e, made planning easy, as one member said: “We like ice cream, we like strawberries and we like to eat them.”
