Girlguiding's Thelma - a Community Champion

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of presenting Thelma Brown from Hexham with a Hexham Constituency Community Champion Award. Thelma runs a Brownie unit and a Guide unit at St Aidan's Church in Hexham, and although she is handing over the Guide unit, she will be continuing to run the Brownies and with her roles within Northumberland County Girl Guiding. Thelma has been involved with the Brownies since she was 7 years old and with the Guides since 11, and began her involvement at St Aidan's Church in 1992. Thelma's dedication to the Brownies and Guides in Hexham is wonderful and I am delighted to have been able to recognise the role she plays in our community. Thank you Thelma for your hard-work and service over many years- a true community champion.
