Brownies Honoured with a Trafford Award

A Brownie Unit from Sale has been honoured for their contribution to the Community over the last 30 years with a prestigious Trafford Award.

For over 30 years, 4th Ashton-on-Mersey South Brownie Unit, based at The Avenue, in Sale, has been visiting Handsworth Methodist Home for the Aged at Christmas time to sing carols, read poems and present the home with Christmas cards and gifts, handmade by the Brownie.

Ann Turnball, a past leader from 4th Ashton-on-Mersey South Brownies said “We are extremely proud to have received this award. The girls especially get a wonderful sense of fulfilment from attending the home each year and this is fantastic recognition of all of the hard work from the unit leaders and Brownies throughout the past 30 years.”

The Trafford Award was donated to Girlguiding Greater Manchester West by the Mayor of Trafford, Councillor Jonathan Taylor in 1983 and is presented each year to an individual or group as recognition for their continued service to the local community.

The award was presented by the County Commissioner, Judith Glenn, to previous Brown Owls from the Unit, Ann Turnbull, Lynn Smith along with the current leader, Laura Barbour and Brownies at the Girlguiding Greater Manchester West Annual Meeting, which was held the County’s Outdoor Activity Centre in Ashley.
