Congratulations to Alison Black on her 40 year Long Service Award. Alison was one of our long service award winners from our Annual Review which took place on Friday 18 November

Alison Black started her guiding life as a brownie with 1st Prestonpans brownies before moving onto 1st Prestonpans guides. Alison went back to be a young leader with 1st Prestonpans brownies and never left – Alison has been a leader with the unit for 40 years.

Alison has seen the programme change numerous times and has been up for the challenge. She has taken the brownies on day trips and on pack holidays over the years.

Alison is always willing to help other leaders and units when required. Her knowledge and new ideas is endless. Her brownies help with the Salvation Army Strawberry Tea and are involved with their Nativity Play every year.
