Brownies in Moulton are looking forward to celebrating Queen Elizabeth 11 becoming the longest serving monarch with a street party style tea – after fears the group might have to fold were unfounded.
Parents were worried for the future of the 44 members of the 2nd Moulton Brownies after Brown Owl Debbie Saville was told the cupboard where they store their equipment in the meeting room at Moulton Community Centre had to go.
However, after a meeting with the committee to discuss the matter over the weekend, Debbie can report that the cupboard can stay.
Yesterday, there were “three cheers” for her from parents on Facebook and praise for her being such a fighter.
She said: “All is well. The centre is undergoing a lot of renovation and things needed moving. Apparently no-one knew who the cupboard belonged to. But the good news is it can stay.”
Brownies will receive a special commemorative badge for the Queen’s anniversary at their party tonight. They will then begin Autumn challenges preparing for Halloween, followed by craftwork for their Christmas boxes.
Debbie said: “We’re so pleased everything got sorted. It was so nice to be told by parents ‘you are not fighting on your own’.”
