    This week marks 100 years of the Brownies.Being allowed to stay after school on a Friday evening,so that I could join my cousins,and go to the Brownies,was such a thrill for me.That added a whole new dimension to my life,and a way of being able to discover the village,for example finding out where Fairy Lane was,while tracking a trail,since I did not have the opportunities to do so,otherwise.I would like to offer my sincere thanks to the Brown Owl,Jessie Ross,who I know passed away last October,Winnie Matthew,her Tawny Owl,and then Catherine McRae Tough,who started the Second Pack in the Maitland Street Hall,because the numbers were increasing.They provided the infrastructure to belong to a group that was not school,nor was it Sunday School,and I benefited a lot from the experience and the knowledge from earning badges. The Pack Leaders also played their part,and we all retain good memories from these good old days Thank you.Jennifer C.Anderson/Gilchrist

    Hi. I’m researching my family history, the Husband family of Tayport. I’m visiting Scotland in May this year.
