The afternoon tea – complete with sandwiches, cake and entertainment – was a celebration of 100 years of girl guiding.

The event, at Hallam Methodist Church Hall, Nethergreen Road, was organised by a group of four Sheffield Hallam University business students – Lizzie Webster, Emily Ravenscroft, Bethan Potts, all aged 22, and Eppie Shepherd, 21 – for their final year project.

All four girls had been Brownies themselves when they were younger.

Bethan said: “We all have such good memories of our experiences with Girlguiding, we wanted to get local groups involved.

“I really enjoyed my time at Brownies because I got to meet people both from school and people who went to different schools around me as well.

“It was a really good experience and I picked up so many skills which I still use now.”

The four girls spent months preparing for the event by visiting the Sheffield Hallam Brownies in Nether Green and getting them to join in with making decorations, practising entertainment and compiling a guest list.

A total of 24 Brownies attended and about 25 Rainbows were also invited along.

The event raised more than £900 for the Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity.
