Scouting and Guiding in Carnoustie joined forces on Saturday to celebrate World Founder’s Day/Thinking Day with a fun day.

Some 200 boys and girls from Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers in Scouting and Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Seniors along with all their leaders had a fantastic afternoon in the Carnoustie High School games hall.

This was Carnoustie’s response to the worldwide celebration of Baden Powell’s and Lady Baden Powell’s birthday with events taking place across Angus, Scotland and the rest of the world.

The Carnoustie Fun Day event started with a parade of flags representing all the units and sections from guiding and scouting.

The children then all separated into four zones and took part in various activities.

Zone one was science and experiment activities; Zone two focussed on the Commonwealth Games and the children enjoyed several competitive activities; Zone three focussed on world conservation and endangered animals; and the final Zone four was a creative craft session.

The Founder’s Day/Thinking Day fun day ended with a camp fire with several of the leaders taking part in activities.

The festivities closed with all members renewing their respective promises.
