Heritage at museum for Brownies during visit

MORE than 500 Brownies recently visited Woodhorn Museum to learn more about their Northumberland heritage.

During the visit, the youngsters made finger puppet figures of the Romans and then attempted to re-build Hadrian’s Wall using large wooden bricks before learning all about the history of St Oswald.

Another challenge for the girls was to crawl along a makeshift mine shaft, while pulling a sledge and carrying a lantern containing a ‘canary’

To complete what was described as a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, the Brownies sang a selection of songs.

County commissioners for Northumberland, Julie Dixon and Dorothy Minns, said the enthusiasm of the group when they took on the activities was excellent.
