Brownies serve centenary treat
BROWNIES served up a treat on Saturday, September 25, to celebrate Guiding’s centenary year.
Free cream teas were offered at Sidmouth’s St John Ambulance Hall. Members of the Trefoil Guild made the teas and Brownie waitresses took orders and served. Some of the girls sang, and a raffle raised �23 for Sidmouth Day Care Nursery.
Guiding helps girls and young women develop confidence, an awareness of their role in the community and life skills.
There are three brownie units, one Guide unit and one Rainbow unit in Sidmouth District, and District Commissioner Chris Chapman is appealing for more adult helpers.
She said: “The Guides enjoyed a Centenary Camp at Woodlands last weekend, but some of our ex-Brownies have not had the opportunity to become Guides. We want to open another Guide unit and already have a leader, but need more volunteers to assist.”

The Rainbow unit opened earlier this year and is proving popular, but volunteers are needed as one of the leaders is now working abroad.
Chris said: “As leaders we get a great sense of satisfaction in seeing the girls develop and enjoy themselves and we enjoy ourselves too.”
