The Chatteris Brownies, all aged seven to 10, joined more than 70 other girls from across the Anglia Region at Hautbois Activity Centre, Norfolk, to celebrate The Big Brownie Birthday.

The girls enjoyed a range of exciting activities, including archery, climbing, abseiling and exploring the woodland.

Claire Simms, unit leader, said: “Sleeping in the Yurts was our best adventure yet. It was really exciting. The range of activities available meant that everyone tried new things.”
