●● PREST­BURY Brown­ies will be get­ting a new Brown Owl.

Anne Car­sons has been the Brown Owl for the 2nd and 3rd Prest­bury packs for 25 years but gave up her lead­er­ship role last month when she turned 65.

Un­able to find a re­place­ment de­spite ap­peals to the com­mu­nity, Anne has re­mained with the 2nd pack as As­sis­tant Leader un­til another Brown Owl could take over.

Now a chance meet­ing has found a re­place­ment – which is a re­lief for Anne as her Young Lead­ers are leav­ing to go to univer­sity and her Snowy Owl, Sara Bolton, is mov­ing up to Guides with her daugh­ter.

Anne said: “I bumped into a Brown Owl at church pa­rade. Ellen Fitzger­ald is re­turn­ing to Prest­bury from Lan­caster Univer­sity, where she runs a Brownie pack, next sum­mer and has agreed to take over Prest­bury Brown­ies.

“I had to pinch my­self. We only met by pure chance and I have agreed to stay on un­til next sum­mer and then hand the reins over to her. What a re­sult!” ●● PREST­BURY CE Pri­mary School is hold­ing an Ice Cream Fri­day on July 17. De­tails will fol­low closer to the time.

The school would also like to re­mind par­ents of the Nearly New Uni­forms they have for sale. Items cost just £2 each and will be dis­played in af­ter­noons on the drive when fea­si­ble.

Those look­ing for some­thing in par­tic­u­lar should email the school at prest­burypta@gmail. com or ask a mem­ber of staff in the play­ground.

Do­na­tions of uni­form items, es­pe­cially those from Year 6 chil­dren who are mov­ing on, can be placed in the lit­tle blue tub just in­side the front door.

The school is also look­ing for a sec­re­tary to take over from Kate Collins next year. Con­tact the school on 01625 383033.
