27. Stevenson, Miss Marjorie

Holme Bank, Cartmel, Grange over Sands, Cumbria.
Died 2004

At Waddow Ruby Jubilee Rally for Guides in 1967, we were told that if the Chief approached us on the terrace we were to say our County and our names,
Lily Crowther and myself were fortunate, she came to us with hands outstretched, and we said "Cheshire - Marjorie Stevenson and Lily Crowther" so she said to Lily "You were counting out Brownies for that wonderful runpast at Bebington, where all the Brownies' macs fell off the bobbing backs as they ran!"

Then she turned to me and said "You haven't always been in Cheshire, have you? would it be ... Northumberland?" So I said "Yes - but we met in Yorkshire!" and she remembered that I had been at her table at Butlin's Camp at the big N.E. Rally weekend in 1948 or 49, and indeed I was, and was very thrilled to have been at her table for breakfast.
