Girls from Girlguiding Selkirk have held an extra-special birthday party – one to mark the 100th birthday of the Brownies.
This year, hundreds of thousands of Girlguiding members from all over the UK are celebrating The Big Brownie Birthday – and the Selkirk Brownies chose to hold their own celebration to mark the occasion.
The Brownies welcomed all the Rainbows, Guides, Senior Section and Trefoil Guild members from the town, as well as county commissioner Gail Fox and local minister Reverend Margaret Steele to the party on March 27. Festivities included an Easter bunny hunt, making bunnies out of flannels, and the evening ended with two Brownies and the Selkirk district commissioner cutting the owl birthday cake and singing some campfire songs.
Brownie leader, Kirsteen MacKenzie, said: “It was fantastic to see the Brownies have so much fun mixing with the other units and our thanks must go to the planning team who organised such an enjoyable evening.”
