‘I found that there was one family that started 1st Onchan, the Caines who lived in Onchan. I believe that there were four sisters who started it and it looks like they ran 1st Onchan for 20 years, although some of the records are missing,’ she said.
The unit has already discovered that at one point there were 28 members of 1st Onchan Brownies and neighbours were roped in to help with the running before 2nd Onchan Brownies was formed.
But they have not been able to trace the founders. Anyone with information about the founders of 1st Onchan Brownies is asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call reporter Rachael Bruce on 695636.
