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 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.

    I also have a soft spot in my heart for Fiji having spent some time there before the big coup in 2000. Sa Vinaka na Kalou!

    I've been reading all your Brownie posts with great interest! - you've obviously been heavily involved with them for a long time.It's rather nice to see that children in the 21st century are still joining, I'm quite keen for my little grandson to be a cub! They do such exciting things these days, and it gets them away from things that plug in.......
