Brownie’s birthday badge wins contest

A NINE-year-old girl won a competition to design a badge marking the centenary of the brownies.

A NINE-year-old girl won a competition to design a badge marking the centenary of the brownies.

Chloe Bradford, who is a member of the 2nd Wargrave brownies, has seen her work turned into material badges to be worn by the rest of her pack.

All the girls in the two Wargrave packs were asked to create a badge for the Big Brownie Birthday celebrations next year containing references to the area and the fact that the brownies are 100 years old.

Chloe’s birthday cake design was chosen by the judges, the Wokingham brownies division commissioners.

Chloe, a pupil at Robert Piggott Junior School in Wargrave, said: “My badge has a boat to represent the Thames and there’s a birthday cake with candles that say 100. I had quite a few attempts at it, so it took quite a long time.

“I’m really happy that they chose my design and all my friends are wearing it on their uniforms.

“When I’m older I’d definitely like to work in some sort of designing, maybe clothes.”

Chloe lives in Twyford with father Paul, 49, an operations manager at Stuart Turner in Henley, mother Sarah, 46, a teaching assistant at Robert Piggott School, and siblings Sophie, 12, and Ross, 14.

Mrs Bradford said: “Chloe’s been going to brownies for six years and before that she was at rainbows. Her sister also went to the Wargrave brownies and it’s a very active group.”

The winners of the age group categories were Grace Silby, nine, Chloe Smith, eight, and Kitty Whitham, seven.
