Girlguiding Angus embarked on a cosmic Star Quest adventure to celebrate the 100th birthday of Brownies.
250 Brownies from around Angus came together at the County’s Outdoor Centre at Ladenford to mark The Big Brownie Birthday with a space-themed spectacular.
The all-girl celebration on August 31 saw the young stargazers travel through three time zones; the past, the present and the future - taking part in challenges and enjoying new and exciting adventures en-route.
They dabbled in Brownie activites from the past – trying on old uniforms, a good old fashioned game of hopscotch and badge activities such as knitting, polishing belts, badges and other brass items.
For the present the girls took part in activities organised by Guide Dogs for the Blind. These included, pairing up, with one girl blindfolded using a cane and the other girl helping her around some obstacles. They also had to use their sense of touch to feel what was in a number of boxes.
Finally they journeyed to the future, where they went on some “Starships” with the help of the LimeLight Company.
Fiona Dalziel, County Commissioner for Girlguiding Angus said: “Seeing Brownies from all over Angus come together to celebrate the Big Brownie Birthday has been fantastic!
“We have had a great year of celebrations, making lifelong memories for our girls. Our outstanding team of dedicated volunteers have had a fabulous time making these events happen.
“Girlguiding empowers girls and young women to make decisions about the opportunities they deserve, making sure their voices are at the heart of what we do.”
