If anyone is interested in joining please do so via the join us website enquiryym.girlguiding.org.uk and select 17th Bolton Rainbows.

A new girl receives the Rainbow flip book. The first side of this book is Ready for Rainbows, designed to help her understand what Rainbows is all about. It contains lots of fun drawing and colouring activities, and a story featuring a Rainbow called Olivia.

The Rainbow activity programme
The Rainbow Jigsaw has four areas: Look Learn Laugh Love

Look: We encourage girls to look around them and learn about their own environment and community.
We also help them understand that they are part of a wider world, perhaps through crafts or games from around the globe, or learning about festivals from other cultures.
Learn: Rainbows learn by taking part in a wide range of activities such as trying out crafts and recipes, playing games and visiting local places of interest.
A representative from the RSPCA might come to a meeting to talk about looking after pets or a police officer might come to explain to the girls about road safety.
Laugh: Rainbows have lots of fun. Meetings involve games, songs, parties, celebrations and making a mess! Girls love sleepovers too!
Love: Through Rainbows, girls learn about caring and sharing with family and friends, working together, fair play, and being considerate and helpful to others.

Usually after a few months girls will take their Promise and will receive her special promise badge & certificate

Saturday Café

On alternate Saturdays the Church opens a Saturday Café (from 22nd October)
Opening times: 10:00am – 12:00noon.
The café is open to all and welcomes passers-by to drop in for a coffee or tea, homemade cake, toasted teacakes or toast and jam and to enjoy lots of chatter and laughter.

Sunday School

High Hopes for Halliwell-being:

Our aim is to continue and promote the varied activities within the community centre, to increase its use by involving more organisations using the building.

We deliver: Parent & toddler group, Chair Yoga, Thursday Friends, Walking group,  Line Dancing and will be looking at providing more activities in the coming year.

If you would like to receive our monthly calendar send an email to community@hopes4halliwell.co.uk and we will put you on our mailing list”
