A Fulmer brownie has made history by being the first to make her ‘girl guiding promise’ at New Scotland Yard.

The 1st Fulmer brownies, together with brownies and guides from Farnham Common were also the first uniformed group to visit New Scotland Yard.

They had written to the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Cressida Dick, who invited them to visit New Scotland Yard for lunch and to hear more of the work of woman police officers. Little Lily made her guiding promise while she was there.

The girls met a number of key officers based at New Scotland Yard including Commander Catherine Roper, who is a guide leader herself. They also met Police Constable Jo Mills and Police Constable Emma Robin and their dogs, Fizz and Eddie. They learned how Fizz plays an important role sniffing out illegal drugs.

The girls left inspired by the knowledge that top jobs are now open to women as much as they are to men.
