Fun in the sun as Brownies head for beach

The sun shone brightly just in time for Dunstable Girl Guiding’s Beach Themed Party, held at Brewers Hill Middle School.

More than 150 Brownies from the Dunstable Division came together for a fun packed evening, hosted by Paula from Funshine Entertainment.

The girls looked amazing as they arrived in their best beach wear and the weather couldn’t have been better as they took to the hall for two hours of fun and games.

Flip flops, grass skirts, swim suits and sun glasses were all the order of the evening as the girls excitedly took part in dance routines, party games and beach themed activities.

One of the highlights of the evening for the girls was their very own “foam” party in true Ibiza style!

The fun did not stop there this weekend.

Rainbows, Brownies Guides and Senior Section from the Division joined with girls from all over Bedfordshire County to celebrate the 100th birthday of Guiding in Bedfordshire.

The fun day was organised at Cardinal Newman School in Luton, where over 1,500 girls in total took part in an amazing day.

Across three zones the girls had the opportunity to experience many new activities. Some went up a climbing wall for the first time and experienced caving as well as more traditional guiding activities such as outside cooking.

Fairground rides were very popular, as were the numerous zorbs and inflatable activities including bungee runs, jousting and surf boarding.

The big top hosted a fantastic circus show and gave some respite from the beating sun.

For those who wanted to enjoy a slower pace there were plenty of opportunities to learn about our solar system in the planetarium, take part in and African drumming session or make something in the arts and crafts sessions.

Everyone went home exhausted but happy, if not a little red after their adventurous day!
