Fiji, where the day begins.
I have a soft spot in my heart for Fiji so it was with delight that I got a response from the Guides of Fiji.
2nd Suva Brownie Pack sent this poster.
They also sent a photo of their group and a sheet about the songs and names of their sixes....
they are the traditional Brownie Figures of Gnomes, Sprites, Imps and Leprechauns. The names and songs are fascinating.
Also a leaders handbook and a gorgeous book about Guiding in the Pacific.
As well as Fiji there are Brownies in The Cook Islands......my daughter and I had the pleasure of visiting a Guide Company in Rarotonga......Kiribati, Solomon Islands,Tonga,Tuvalu, Vanuatu and Western Samoa.
I remember crossing the International dateline between Fiji and Tonga....on my birthday...and losing half of it!!
Joy of joys they also sent a badge!
Here it is in my tiny Pacific Collection.
