Brownie Ava Davidson who won the best business idea prize

Brownies in Rothbury have been rewarded for their efforts as entrepreneurs after raising more than £1,000.

Members of the 2nd Coquetdale group were each given £10 and issued the challenge of setting up their own business and making money in their very own Brownies Do The Apprentice.

Sponsored by Lazy Grace and Rothbury businesswoman Melanie Thompson-Glen, the girls set about their task, with the end products of their business ideas being on sale at the Jubilee Hall.

And three prizes were up for grabs for the best business idea, most profit and best logo.

Kate Holt from Rothbury WI, Melanie Thompson-Glenn and Nicola Tait from Lazy Grace judged each business and winners were announced at a table-top sale at the end of last month.

Zoe Underwood won the prize for the most profit after making a staggering £230 by having a raffle of her own.

Ava Davidson won best business idea, selling homemade wreaths made from recycled material on her stall called Rags to Riches.

Erin Hemmings won the award for the best logo for her homemade truffle stall.

Each Brownie received a £20 WH Smith voucher for their efforts.
