During May, Brownies from the10th Newport Unit, 11th Newport Guides and Carisbrooke Rangers held a fundraiser for St John’s Church, Newport’s 2020 Vision Appeal.

Fliss Harris leader of 10th Newport Brownies organised the event at St John’s Community Centre in Newport at which £220 was raised for the appeal which aims to raise enough money for the building of a new community hall.

This fundraiser included a fantastic entertainment from the Brownies ranging from singing, dancing, skits and more. Refreshments were served and there were games and a raffle at the event which was supported by the families and friends of the Girlguiding IW members as well as members of the church community.

In 2012 St John’s Church (St. John the Baptist) Newport, celebrated 175 years.
