A BROWNIE pack had a meeting with an international flavour.
The 18th Chester Brownies, based in Westminster Park, learnt about Russian Brownies and Guides at their regular weekly meeting.
The event was organised by Marina Darcy, a Guider who is raising money to bring six or seven Russian Guides to the Surf 07 camp at Martin Mere in the summer.
She has travelled to Russia, and taught the Chester Brownies how to count to 10 in Russian, understand the alphabet and played a game with them based on Russian money.
Brown Owl Jan Hooper said: 'The Brownies had a lot of fun learning about another country.
'It made them aware that Guiding happens all over the world.'
The pack has other Russian events planned for the spring, including a Thinking Day service at St Mark's Church in Saltney.
