Ashchurch Brownies Open Barleyfields Show Home And Learn About Jobs In The Housebuilding Industry
08 Jul 2019

The 1st Ashchurch Brownie Group officially opened Linden Homes’ beautiful new show home at its Barleyfields development in Ashchurch at a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The sixes (working groups) of rabbits, foxes, moles and squirrels were working towards their jobs badge and learnt about the housebuilding process and the wide variety of roles available in the industry – from site manager to land buyer, surveyor to technical coordinator.

Sue Haines from 1st Ashchurch Brownie Group said: “The Brownies had a brilliant time and were buzzing when we got back. They enjoyed looking around the show home and it was so good to do something different and make them think differently about the many jobs available to them in the future.

“Brownies introduces girls to a world of new opportunities, challenges and fun, and the event certainly fulfilled this brief – it was such a fantastic experience for them and they loved being involved.”

Emma Mackay from Linden Homes, said: “The Brownies were really interested in the number of people that were required to deliver a new home and it was great to see them so enthusiastic as we explored the show home – although they quickly spotted there wasn’t a television and suggested we included one! The Brownies asked some fantastic questions and it was wonderful to see them all so inspired.

“We were delighted to see the houses they had made afterwards – it looks as though there may be some budding builders amongst them!”
