AUCHTERARDER BROWN OWL IS ROSEANNA’S LOCAL HERO FOR OPENING OF PARLIAMENT
At the Opening of the Scottish Parliament on 1st July, one special group of people taking part in the Riding – a procession down the Royal Mile – was be the Local Heroes, nominated by Members of the Scottish Parliament from within their constituencies.
Roseanna has nominated as her Local Hero, Ms Susan Wishart, leader (or Brown Owl) of 1st Auchterarder Brownies. Ms Cunningham said:
“Susan Wishart was suggested to me as a Local Hero by one of her fellow Brownie leaders because of the huge amount of time and energy she devotes to organising adventurous and challenging activities for the girls to take part in, and for the work she does in fundraising to make sure the activities are affordable for all.
“The range of outings that Susan puts in place each year for her Brownie pack on top of their regular activities is varied, interesting and impressive. She clearly goes above and beyond and I would say that the 1st Auchterarder Brownies are very fortunate indeed to have her as their Brown Owl.
“I chose to put Susan’s name forward in recognition of that and as a representative of all those wonderful volunteers working in organisations throughout my constituency who work so hard to provide enjoyable, memorable and beneficial experiences for our young people.”
