An "inspirational" Brownie leader has been recognised for her work.

Janet McNeill, leader of the 15th Loughton Brownies based at St Michel’s Church since 2001, received Loughton Town Council’s Citizenship Award for 2014.

The Brownie leader of 40 years was presented with the Community Rose Bowl and scroll at Loughton Methodist Church yesterday by the Lord Lieutenant of Essex, Lord Petre.

Division Commissioner for Girlguiding Epping Forest South Division, Susan Wiseman, nominated Ms McNeill.

She said: “Janet is an inspiration, a role model and a tremendous support to all other leaders from the Division and the Commissioners too.

“You never forget a good Guider and there are so many ex-Brownies who will never forget Janet’s leadership.

“She always goes above and beyond the call of duty and is one this Division’s strongest assets.”
