Clifton, 1st Clifton Brownies


This Brownie pack was one of the first groups of any kind to be formed on the estate. The First Clifton Brownies was started by Peggy Towson at St. Francis Church around 1955. It’s now run by Deidre Nall who has been a guider for 33 years. They meet once a week in terms times in the Clifton Village Hall. They do a variety of craft, design and sport activities, and Deidre says that she loves seeing a transformation in the girls confidence. Deidre’s parents were some of the very first Clifton residents and came before the roads were laid. There’s now a fourth generation of this family growing up on the estate, and the Brownie pack is run with Deirdre’s daughter.
