Girls were the greenest of Brownies; REMEMBER WHEN YOUR SHOUT.
Every weekend, the girls were pushing bright-painted barrows around their Northumberland village chanting "Any old paper?".
And not only were they helping the conservation movement, they were also helping to raise money for a local cause. For all the waste paper they collected and sold, the Brownies, from Stamfordham, helped to raise vital cash towards the renovation of the village hall. Coun Colin Pinder, who was helping to run the project at the time, said: "The girls are doing a marvellous job. They have collect several tons of paper so far."
