Girls cell-bound on Brown­ies visit

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Front Page -

PARBOLD Brown­ies en­joyed a tour of Skelmers­dale po­lice sta­tion – and even got to try out the po­lice cells for size.

They were all amused when Brown Owl, Sandy Smith, ac­ci­den­tally locked up one of the other Owls plus sev­eral Brown­ies in one of the cells.

For­tu­nately, the cus­tody sergeant was on hand to set them free again.

The group sam­pled prison food and were shown in­side a large po­lice van com­plete with riot gear.

They also saw and heard the blue lights and sirens in ac­tion and were able to sit in a po­lice car as well as try­ing out a po­lice mo­tor bike for size.

A Brown­ies spokesper­son said tht the girls re­ally en­joyed their visit, learned a lot about polic­ing and were very grate­ful to all the of­fi­cers who came along to talk to them.

Any­one in­ter­ested in vol­un­teer­ing to help more girls en­joy op­por­tu­ni­ties like this with the Brown­ies is asked to con­tact Parbold dis­trict team mem­ber Sandy Smith on 01257 463407.
