Peasmarsh village voice

A plea from Peasmarsh Brownies: Peasmarsh Brownies are in need of new leaders for Autumn term 2012. Pam Hanwell will have reached that age that Guides have to retire from leadership at - but will still be on hand to help if and when needed.

Paula, who has been an assistant Guider for 30 years (first with Camber Brownies, then Peasmarsh Guides and finally Peasmarsh Brownies) is also leaving. Without leaders this successful Brownie pack of 19 Brownies would have to close! Anyone who thinks they might like to join us with a view to leading or assisting a leader is welcome to join us for the summer term and see what fun we have. We are pack holidaying in May and having a sleepover and outing in July - plus all the other fun things we do in the summer months. These young girls are our future; come and join us and have a little input into their lives.
