1st Armitage Brownies helped a special lady celebrate a special birthday with a surprise party at their meeting this week. Little Owl, Brenda Heathcote was greeted with a cheer and waving balloons as she arrived for Brownie duty on Friday night. The girls had decorated the patio with chalk drawings of Birthday wishes and bunting, and made their own table decorations to put amongst the party food. Once the Brownies had played their party games in the evening sun and everyone had finished their cake, the two oldest Brownies presented Brenda with a bouquet of flowers.

Rugeley Division Commissioner Jenny, then presented Brenda with a new badge from the Division, and The President’s Award was also presented to her on behalf of the Division President Mary Davis as a thank you for the contribution Brenda has made to The Brownies over the past 25 years. More photos can be found on the Armitage with Handsacre facebook page.
