Members and leaders of 1st Turriff Brownies met recently for an evening of celebration.

Following the latest coronavirus guidelines leaders were able to present the girls, aged 7-10, with all of the badges they have worked on since the summer as well as some special awards, and the girls were also able to celebrate the hard work of some local key workers.

Amongst the badges presented to the girls were Think Resilient, Remembrance, Hallowe'en, BBC Children In Need, Canal And River Explorers Challenge, Tri-Sports Challenge, baking and sewing badges.

With all of the work they have done this year, four of the Brownies had achieved their Brownies Bronze Award, which requires them to complete a selection of unit activities, skill building activities and interest badges from two of the six themes which make up Girlguiding's programme.

The girls can now go on to earn their silver (four themes) and gold (six themes) awards.

The group were joined by local postman Micheal Gray, who was presented with some sweet treats to share with his colleagues.

As part of their Guiding Light challenge badge, which the Brownies completed during lockdown, the girls wrote letters to key workers in the local community to thank them for all of their work during the pandemic and they decided they would like to help fuel the local posties - who have been exceptionally busy this year - with a little gift.

The girls ended the term with a movie night and a sleepover alongside the Rainbows and Guides.
