PREST­BURY Brown­ies had a sur­prise visi­tor at their an­nual Big Crunch Cof­fee morn­ing at Prest­bury Vil­lage Hall at the week­end.

Chief Guide Gill Slo­combe and her cousin, Fiona Heron, showed up unan­nounced to thank Anne Car­sons, Brown Owl for 2nd Prest­bury Brown­ies, for her vol­un­teer work span­ning a quar­ter of a cen­tury for both the 2nd and 3rd packs in the vil­lage.

Anne, 65, said: “I was speech­less, it was like meet­ing roy­alty.

“It was a won­der­ful morn­ing.”

As­sis­tant re­gion com­mis­sioner Becky Ash­worth ac­com­pa­nied Gill, as did Heather Cann, county pres­i­dent, and Clare Worth, county com­mis­sioner, who pre­sented Anne with a Good Ser­vice Award.

The group tucked into cof­fee and cake served by the Brown­ies and the Chief Guide chat­ted to them and the Rain­bows, giv­ing them spe­cial Chief Guide badges.

The morn­ing ended with a raf­fle which raised £377.86, money which will go to­wards the up­keep of the Brownie HQ and help to fund equip­ment and coaches for out­ings.
