BROWNIES from Clitheroe district enjoyed a Sunday stroll... to the summit of Pendle Hill.

The energetic youngsters from Clitheroe, Gisburn and Grindleton set out with their leaders plus parents and other family members to climb the hill on a beautiful but chilly day. Once at the top, they all remade their promises in a large Brownie Ring around the Trig point, and each received a badge for completing the climb.

One of the leaders said: “We’re not sure what all the walkers and runners coming across the top and having to touch the Trig point made of 30-odd Brownies singing Brownie Bells, but we all had a great time!”

The idea for the walk came from the Gisburn Brownies who asked if they could go up as an area Brownie event.
