Horley Brownies' special centenary celebration - in supermarket
4:12pm Monday 16th June 2014 in Local News
Young members of the 7th Horley Brownies are to celebrate 100 years of Brownies next week in a 'moving' way.
For the girls aged from seven to ten will be doing the Conga around Horley Waitrose next Monday (June 23).
The 7th Horley Brownies are marking the centenary year by completing a series of adventurous and creative challenges, each linked to a milestone year in the history of one of Girlguiding’s best-known sections.
Dubbed the Big Brownie Birthday Challenge, the specially created programme of activities has been designed to enable the girls to make their own decisions, learn new skills and have fun.
The 28-strong Horley pack chose a range of tasks to take on together, including abseiling, learning the phonetic alphabet, a Big Brownie birthday tea party and a circus skills day.
7th Horley Brownies Brown Owl, Anna Stone, said they are looking forward to their Conga challenge.
She said: “We're going to be conga-ing around the aisles. It will be business as usual in the supermarket, so there might be a few surprised shoppers.”
Ms Stone said Horley town mayor Richard Olliver is expected to attend the conga at 6.30pm, the girls will have charity collection buckets to accept donations for the Help For Heroes cause, and all are welcome.
The 7th Horley pack meets at St Francis Church in Balcombe Road and was set up 55 years ago.
