The 3rd Haddenham Brownies celebrated their 40th Birthday on Tuesday 12th November with brownies, special guests and friends.
Brown Owl, Mrs Diane Austin said "we just wanted a celebration evening for everyone to enjoy". Fluffy Owl Miss Feyja Pattrick made the chocolate birthday cake which was cut by Tawny Owl Mrs Anne MacKeller, her daughter Louise and grandson Harry. Anne was also presented with a 30 year service brooch from Girlguiding.
3rd Haddenham Brownies was started by the headmistress of the First school Miss Pound, who use to take the brownies away for a week for pack holiday, and Mrs Linda Bamford, who use to be the cook, and recalled preparing 100 fish fingers for breakfast which had to be ready by 7.30am.
Mrs Wendy Walden then took over from Miss Pound and when Wendy started the Guides then Mrs Janet Ritchie carried on the brownies. Mrs Diane Austin took over from Janet.
The brownies joined with the guests to complete a quiz about Guiding and 1973, which everyone found most enjoyable and stirred a few memories.
