Brown Lodge our headquarters for both Scouts and Guides

 

Reverend Brown who owned the land, bequeathed it to Churchdown Guides but on their own they could not afford to build a headquarters on it so they approached the Scouts to see if anything could be done.  After many years fund raising including getting the scouts and guides to collect old newspapers (the original recycling??) the building began.  The majority of the build was done by volunteer parents etc and Brown Lodge was born.
