Carnoustie Scouts and Guides held their annual Thinking Day and Founder’s Day church parade in St Anne’s Church in the town on Sunday.

The church was full to commemorate World Thinking Day which marks the birthday of the founders of the movements - Lord and Lady Baden Powell. World Thinking Day is a day of friendship, advocacy and fund-raising for all Scouts and Guides around the world.

The parade was led by the Scout pipes and drums with Krzysztof Black and Josh Craigie as the flags were received by Father Ian Wilson. Lauren Hally from the Brownies and Andrew Lyall from the Scouts led the readings. There were musical interludes from the Carnoustie Guide and Scout strings and accordion group, who played Glencoe, and the South Angus Guide and Scout Wind Band who played Marching Marines.

Each section then renewed their Guide or Scout promise and the colours were returned to the flag bearers. Following the blessing and national anthem the flag party (pictured) formed a guard of honour at the door of the church as everyone left. Pictured are those who took part.
