SLIDESHOW: Brownies’ bumper birthday

Waiting for Video...

Young brownies have celebrated their centenary year with a series of adventurous and creative challenges.

Kinsley Church of the Resurrection pack marked the Big Brownie 100th Birthday with tasks including a sleepover at The Deep in Hull, a tree climbing and zip wire challenge, cooking on a camp fire, and visiting a stately home.

Each challenge, set by Girlguiding UK, is linked to a milestone year in Brownie history.

Members of the group, all aged seven to 10 received a special Big Brownie Birthday badge to celebrate completing all the challenges after 36 weeks.

The section was also presented with a cake in the shape of the badge.

Leader, Wendy Freer, said: “Seeing the girls take on the Big Brownie Birthday challenge has been fantastic. They have learnt lots of new skills and I am really proud of the way they have taken on the challenges. We have all had lots of fun along the way.”
