Brownies from across Angus came together at the county’s outdoor centre at Ladenford to mark The Big Brownie Birthday with a space-themed spectacular.

The celebration saw 250 young stargazers travel through three time zones - the past, present and future - taking part in challenges and enjoying new and exciting adventures en route.

The story included activities based on Brownies in the past, trying on old uniforms and taking part in badge-work activities such as knitting, polishing belts, badges and other brass items and they also had a game of hopscotch. For the present the girls played giant games, such as Connect Four and jenga, and completed a star trail in the woods where they had to find 26 stars to break a coded message.

Finally they journeyed to the future, where they went on some ‘starships’ with the help of the LimeLight Company.

The Brownies also took part in a number of activities organised by Guide Dogs, and presented a cheque to the charity during the course of the day.
