A THRIVING Brownie pack may have to close if no new leaders can be found.

The 2nd Woodbridge (St Mary's) Brownies have celebrated their 70th birthday, but the present leaders will retire at the end of July, and it might close if no new leaders are found.

Spokesperson Rosemary Bird urged anyone interested to find out more, and said they should not be put off by lack of experience.

She said: "All new leaders are given a mentor to help them through their first year or so.

Brownies are aged seven to 11, and work on an established programme, learning life skills, and being encouraged to be self-sufficient.

They have a wide range of interest badges to earn.
