10th Newport(Congregational) Brownies are celebrating 60 years of the unit. This unit, then a Pack,
first met at the Queens Hall, Newport before moving to the Congregational Church Hall in Newport. This was situated in Lower St. James Street and is now the Wetherspoon’s pub- The Man in the Moon.
When formed as well as the then Brownie Pack there was also a Guide Company for the older girls but sadly this closed some years ago.
As part of thier celebrations the Brownies and leaders are attending three special events to mark the ocassion. In October they visited Thorntons to learn how to decorate chocolates and of course chocolate tastes came into play.
More celebrations will follow-watch this space….
