Gallery: Girls and young women from Chatteris’ guiding groups come together to celebrate World Thinking Day

GIRLS and young women of different ages came together for a day of activities at the weekend to celebrate World Thinking Day.

Rainbows, brownies, guides, senior section and leaders from Chatteris’ groups all gathered at The King Edward Centre to mark one of the most significant dates in the guiding calendar.

Ten million guides and girl scouts in 145 countries join forces around the world to think about the diversity of the worldwide membership and show appreciation for each other’s lives.

Around 60 members learnt about cultures, crafts, foods and dance at the event which was funded by hairdresser Angie Adams.

Diane Cooper, a leader with one of the brownie units, said: “It was so nice to see all the different ages working together especially as they don’t all know each other.”

World Thinking Day takes place on February 22 each year, the date of Lord and Lady Baden-Powell’s birthday. They were key founders in the original scout and guide movements.
