A GROUP of Brownies in Alton have been busy celebrating their centenary. The 2nd Alton Brownies were formed 100 years ago by Agnes Baden Powell – and the girls marked the occasion with a parade through the town complete with symbolic torch. They also headed to London, staying at the Girl Guide World Centre at Pax Lodge, which is named after the Bentley home of the Baden Powell family. For full story, see this week's Alton Herald.
