Sidmouth Brownies’ farewell to Brown Owl
THE 1st Sidmouth Brownies have bid fond farewell to their Brown Owl – who once swooped in to save the unit from closure.
Rosemary Zirker says she’ll be taking a much-needed rest after youngsters had a hoot when they staged a party to mark her retirement.
Each spoke on why they love being part of the group and then sang Brownie songs before making farewell gift presentations.
The evening culminated in a party tea.
Rosemary has been running the unit for five years - having rescued it from closure.
