Hundreds of Brownies from across the borough have taken part in a special celebration.

Members of Girlguiding in North Tyneside celebrated the ‘Big Brownie Birthday’ with a host of activities at Beaconsfield in Tynemouth.

The activities on offer included bouncy castles, a high slide, an inflatable assault course, ventriloquist, street science group, face painting, balloon modelling and more.

Brownies paraded down a red carpet wearing all the Brownie uniforms from 1914 to the present day, next to a large archive display of photographs of guiding events held in North Tyneside through the decades.

North Tyneside Steel Band played throughout the afternoon and the day ended with a traditional sing song and a huge birthday cake was cut by the north east England chief commissioner, Hilary Cooper.

Val Laverty, head of the planning team for the event, said: “We were very pleased with the outcome of 18 months planning and preparations.

“The event was a huge success and even the weather was kind to us.”
