Barry and Monikie Brownies joined together to celebrate 100 years by holding a party at Carnoustie Leisure Centre and doing what Brownies do best - having fun, making craft, playing games and of course Birthday Cake.

This is the Carnoustie, Monikie and Barry Brownies’ year as they join groups from across the country to celebrate the 100 year birthday of the Girlguiding section, the Brownies.

The Carnoustie Leisure 
Centre was a venue transformed by the local Brownie groups bringing all the girls 
together to do what they do best – make crafts, play games and of course, eat birthday cake.

It was a chance for them to have fun, stand in the spotlight and shout out about just how much of a difference girls can make.

The Big Brownie Birthday is being marked by local Brownies who have chosen different ways to mark the occasion.

The Brownie section was started in 1914 when younger girls, seeing the opportunities older girls were being offered in Guides, called for something for them too. 
At a time when women had 
no vote, the first Brownies made the most of the space guiding offered to push boundaries, shatter stereotypes and discover their full potential and they haven’t stopped since.

This year is an opportunity to celebrate the amazing opportunities all girls and young women can get through guiding and the incredible impact our 100,000 inspirational volunteers have.
