Pioneer honour to be unveiled

A BROWNIE will unveil a memorial to the movement’s leading light in Chesterfield.

Thousands of people voted for Lady Olave Baden-Powell – the wife of guide and scout founder Lord Robert Baden-Powell who became Chief Guide for Britain in 1918 – to be honoured in Derbyshire County Council’s blue plaque scheme.

Brownie Hallie Baron (9) and council leader Andrew Lewer will unveil the plaque in Shentall Memorial Gardens, – where Lady Baden-Powell once lived – at 2.30pm on Tuesday.
