Brownies at the Sheringham Lifeboat Station

Now some of you may be thinking that the Crew of the Sheringham Lifeboat are pigging out on a tasty chocolate treat. Nothing could be further from the truth!!

Brownies at the Sheringham Lifeboat Station 2017

The 2nd Sheringham Brownie Pack have, during their Easter Holidays, been carrying out Bob-a Job money raising events in support of Sheringham RNLI. This culminated in a visit to the lifeboat station on Tuesday evening 25th April where they were given an informative tour of the station by Crewman Steve Price, which included actually being on the Lifeboat itself, which I’m sure any of the Brownies will tell you is an Atlantic 85 rigid inflatable lifeboat named “The Oddfellows”, after The Manchester Unity Independent Order of Oddfellows who donated the cost of this boat. The Atlantic 85 is one of the new generation of RNLI B-class Atlantic inshore lifeboats, first developed by the RNLI from a design originated at Atlantic College, South Wales.

As well as being on the Lifeboat the girls were shown by Crew Member Kate Munro how to don the gear that the crews wear when they go out on a shout. As time is of the essence when there is a shout it is important the kit is donned as quickly as possible ready for the launch and so Kate timed some of the girls putting on the kit which proved to be quite amusing!

Brownies at the Sheringham Lifeboat Station 2017

The 2nd Sheringham Brownie Pack has been ever present in Sheringham for about 50 years although there have been Brownies n Sheringham for 100 years and the 1st Sheringham Pack is indeed celebrating its centenary this year.

So, during the Easter Hols the pack did many Bob-a-Job tasks including washing dishes, emptying dishwashers, cleaning bathrooms, polishing (upstairs and down!), dog walking and other household tasks. One of the girls was even paid to stay outside! Three of the girls went that extra mile, and more! Poppy Gibbons did a sponsored swim of 22 lengths which raised 28 and her sister Holly with her friend Emma Bell did a 3 mile sponsored run around Felbrigg Hall which raised 37. All the girls taking part brought their hard earned cash to hand over to RNLI Treasurer Tony Randall who has the task of counting and banking all that loose change! The total raised was 113.44

Brown Owl Tina Allen said “It is very important that the Brownies are in touch with the local community and as the RNLI is an important part of our community we try to do our bit for this important voluntary service”.

As such, the girls have been learning about how the RNLI works, including a session on knot tying taken by Kate Munro who is the only female Crew Member at the Sheringham Station. After this close liaison things may well change in the future! The information that the girls glean from their visit to the station plus other learning such as the knot tying goes towards gaining their Traditions and Culture Badges which they proudly display on their uniforms.

Tina continued “We also get involved in the community in other ways by getting involved in the Sheringham Carnival and we also took part in the annual Christingle Service at Christmas”
The 2nd Sheringham Brownies meet every Tuesday from 6.00 pm for an hour and a half at The Guide Headquarters on Cromer Road and would be pleased to welcome any new girls between the ages of 7 and 10.
