TWO dedicated sisters have been awarded more than 100 Brownie badges between them since joining three years ago.

Twins Faye and Megan Seagrove, 10, of Kidderminster, have gained 64 badges each for completing challenges such as swimming, riding, fire safety, crime prevention, water sports and discovering faith, while at the 3rd Kidderminster Brownie Group.

The youngsters, who attend St John’s Primary School, have only missed out on four badges and have now joined a Girl Guides group based in Stourport.

Their mother, Lynn, said: “It was my idea for them to join the Brownies. I was one when I was younger and had lots of fun. I thought it would be an opportunity for them to make new friends and they’ve had a super time.

“I think Brownies is a great thing to do. They have taken part in activities like abseiling and fencing and made new friends.”

Mrs Seagrove added that the girls worked towards some of their badges while at home so they could find out about things as a family.

“It is educational,” Mrs Seagrove, of Cathedral Avenue, said.

“I don’t think the girls really realise that they have got so many badges.

“They’re very proud of themselves and it’s a good achievement. They have collected more badges than the average Brownie would get.”

Mrs Seagrove explained that some of the interesting things the girls had done to gain some of their badges included visiting Birmingham Central Mosque, buying food at a market in France, visiting Stourport Fire Station, canoeing and raft building.
