Berkshire Brownies celebrate 100th birthday

The brownies are celebrating their 100th birthday with an Olympic torch-style celebration.

GIRL POWER: Cookham Dean Brownies have been involved in the anniversary relay.


Festivities for the Big Brownie Birthday are taking place across Berkshire for six months and the candle has been travelling through Maidenhead.

As well as the candle relay, each brownie unit is taking part in its own unique celebration, including candle-themed activities and games.

On Thursday, March 27, the candle visited Cookham Dean Village Hall where the brownies performed some Bollywood dancing.

Unit leader for 1st Cookham Dean Brownies, Hannah Dutfield, said: "Brownies are extremely popular in Maidenhead.

"What we do here gives girls the opportunity to build confidence, make new friends and try different activities that are new to them."

The candle will finish its journey in Reading on Saturday, June 21, with a big Brownie birthday party.
