Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and leaders from across Brechin and Edzell came together on Friday, February 22 to celebrate World Thinking Day at St Andrew’s Church.

Brownie leader Brenda Angus said: “This is a special day for both the Girl Guiding and Scout movement as it is the birthdays of their founders Lord Robert Baden-Powell and his wife Lady Olave Baden-Powell.

“The celebrations took place at the St Andrew’s Church, where this year’s theme was Friendship. “Each section presented a piece on Friendship through the means of a song or a poem.”

World Thinking Day, which has been celebrated since 1926, is an opportunity for the ten million Guides and Girl Scouts in 145 countries around the world to think about the diversity of the worldwide membership and show appreciation for each other’s lives.

Girlguiding used World Thinking Day as a platform to launch its new look - including introducing a speech-bubble shaped logo - to reflect the charity’s commitment to giving girls and young women a voice.

As well as refreshing the logo, Girlguiding has created a set of materials to help local guiding groups increase their visual presence in their communities.
