Boost for Brownies' Fun Day from 'Sir Walter'

An appearance by 'Sir Walter Raleigh' during the 400th anniversary year was certain to be seen as a special attraction at community events in the Great Elizabethan's home area. 

The 1st and 2nd Brownies held a Fun Day on Sunday 17 June. The event was held to raise funds for a blue plaque commemorating former Budleigh Brownies leader and children's author Jean Blathwayt. 


Here's 'Sir Walter' with 'Brown Owl' Eve White, who organised the event 

Being photographed with 'Sir Walter' was a family fun experience! 

You can read about Jean Blathwayt on the panels below. They were produced for an exhibition about her to mark the centenary of her birth in 1918.
