Party in the park for Brownies.

MORE than 1,400 of Girlguiding West Mercia's Brownies and leaders (Wolverhampton and Black Country) spent a day in the sunshine at Weston Park, Staffordshire recently, celebrating their 100th birthday. They were joined by UK's Chief Guide Gill Slocombe and County Commissioner Marion Watkins as they played games, made music and partied into the evening, enjoying an open-air concert, with tribute acts from Katy Perry, Olly Murs, Little Mix and One Direction.

Everyone had a great time, including Charlotte, aged eight, of 4th Kingswinford Brownies, who said: "I think the 100-year celebration party was a fantastic idea because Brownies all over the county could get together, take part in activities and make new Brownie friends. It was an awesome concert and a great way to listen to lots of different music outside."

Ruth, aged eight, of 3rd Penn Brownies, said: "I really enjoyed it, so many activities, my favourite was the cheerleading."

Brownies is for girls aged 7-10 and offers a varied weekly programme, including everything from stargazing and world issues to abseiling, canoeing and zip wiring.

Girlguiding West Mercia covers large parts of the Black Country, plus, there are divisions covering Birmingham and the rest of the Midlands. To learn more about joining, visit www.girlguiding.org.uk and click on Get Involved.
