Local brownie Wins Region Christmas card competition
Congratulations to Charlotte Oram, aged 9, from 5th Heswall Brownies who won the Girlguiding North West England Region Christmas card competition. Her design to bring Santa’s sleigh in to the 21st century was chosen from hundreds of entries. The judges commended Charlotte’s use of different technologies to help a modern day Santa deliver his presents and really liked her use of festive colour. The competition was part of the Region’s Inventor Challenge for all guides and brownies, in conjunction with Spaceport. Girls and leaders are being encouraged to participate in lots of different kinds of scientific activities with a little inspiration from Wallace and Gromit. ‘All the Brownies had a go at designing a modern sleigh for Santa and we were thrilled when Charlotte won’ said Melinda, her Assistant Brownie Leader.
