It’s not every day you can spend the night in the Co-op doorway or Police phone box with all your friends.
But those were only two of the ingenious places the city’s guides and brownies found to lay down their heads during a hectic night at Milton Keynes Museum weekend.
Around 450 youngsters from north Milton Keynes took part in two days of activities – of which the chance to spend a night camped out amongst the exhibits was only one part.
“We all love it,” said outgoing division commissioner Sheila Beales, who was organising her third Night at Milton Keynes Museum event – with the help of legions of adult volunteers.
“It gives groups who don’t usually get the chance to take the girls away a chance to stay away for a night.”
Among the extra activities laid-on was a bedtime story about WWI soldier Albert French, old-
time dancing and a fish and chip supper.
This coming weekend the extensive galleries will again be taken over by and for young people as the annual Children and Family event takes place June 14 and 15.
