2nd Toft Brownies thoroughly enjoyed their visit from Paul at Shooting Stars. They had picked up a few circus skills at a recent Brownie camp, but Paul added lots of fun takes on the bits they had learnt and they loved the extra challenges. Lots of fun was had by all including the leaders and parent helpers! Thanks Paul!- Emma Kirkham, Brownie Leader

Circus Performer Badge

all girls in my brownie unit that attend the workshop had a great time and come up to me afterwards saying it was a fab meeting, the workshop was great as the girls all got to try a wide range of equipment and learn new skills. the instructor was great as he may sure he went around and help all the girls and given them plenty of advice and hints and may it a lot of fun even for us leader to have a go too.
i will definitely recommend you to my other guiding friends and would book again for my unit in the future.
Other features: keep doing what you are doing as you are providing a great service for people to learn new skills etc- jennifer, brownie leader

Diversions Family Support Network -
Dealing with shooting stars is a pleasure. The booking process was simple and any queries we had were dealt with very promptly.The session was brilliant as everyone of all ages could join in. As a support group the fact that someone else was in charge and running the session enabled the trustees and parents to chat and discuss medical/practical issues whilst the children were occupied was fantastic. The instructor worked with us and was very flexible which was perfect for our group. This was the second time we have used shooting stars and I am sure we will book again in the future. Many thanks.- Anna Willard, Trustee

Thank you so much. A great time was had by all - leaders and children alike. We all achieved skills we didnt think we could and the Brownies cant stop talking about it!
Chris was brilliant at giving instructions and then working with individuals and small groups to encourrage more, or to extend to further skills. The huge variety in the 1st hour kept us interested and amazed, and the free hour went all too quickly! The Brownies were also good at helping each other. I would recommend this to everyone.- Kathryn Vaughan, Brown Owl

A really positive experience. Staff were very relaxed and young people focussed. They dealt calmly with large numbers of young people and spent time explaining how the equipment worked. Would definitely recommend to colleagues.- Justin Garner
