100th anniversary of the Brownies

 

1900 Berkshire brownies accompanied by their leaders and organisers assembled at the Rivermead Centre in Reading yesterday looking a lot younger than their organisation which was having its 100th birthday. It was a well prepared day, with a wide range of activities for the girls. Climbing an irregular wall, riding a bike  on a banked circuit, taking to a canoe, or racing a space hopper were popular outdoor pursuits, whilst indoors brownies could make things from a variety of raw materials.

My visit provided an opportunity o thank the local leaders who put a lot of their own time and energy into offering interesting programmes to the girls as part of the wider scouting movement.
