FLOWER TOWER IN
THE HIGH STREET - A MUCH APPRECIATED DEED KINDLY PROVIDED BY THE
Both Brownie units braved
the weather one Monday evening and did something for the community.
The tower of plants outside
the Old Post Office now is full of colour. Someone had cleared the
weeds and planted a trailing fuchsia in the very top container,
thank goodness, because Brownies aren't that tall.
Whilst they were there two
of the 2nd Saxmundham Brownies said their promise, which everyone
does, usually in their first term. Part of this is to keep the Brownie
Guide Law, Ďa Brownie thinks of others before herself and does a
good turn everyday'.
Brownies, who meet at the Fromus Centre and the Scout Hut on Monday
evenings have certainly done the Town a good turn, with pansies
and petunias in Yellow for Brownies, Blue for Guides and a (pinky)
Red for Rainbows.
Everyone in Guiding Saxmundham
hope you enjoy them.
