As already posted 2nd Ryde Brownies have been busy making gifts for family, friends and themselves with a visit to Fired Art in Ryde. All the Brownies were also busy raising money for the Red Cross by putting on a concert and made a presentation of a cheque to the value of £60.
and of course a gift from Santa himself.

These units were: 1st Brighstone & Shorwell Rainbows, 11th Newport Guides, 1st Brighstone & Shorwell Brownies, Brighstone Guides and Yarmouth Guides. All the Christmas Trees were decorated in different styles many with hand-made decorations made by the girls.
