Young members of the 4th March Brownies have returned from a fun-filled four-day international adventure to celebrate the 100th birthday of Brownies.
The six girls, all aged seven to 10, joined Brownies from all over the UK for Euro Hop – a one-off girl-only trip organised to mark The Big Brownie Birthday.
The young holiday-makers boarded a coach bound for Château d’Ebblinghem in Northern France on 25th July 2014.
During their stay, they had the chance to try out sand yachting, tour a chocolate factory and enjoy a French-themed soirée. They also had the choice of a range of evening activities – including a disco to celebrate The Big Brownie Birthday in style.
Lucy, aged 7, said: “Our trip to France was brilliant – it was really fun going on holiday with my friends. My favourite bit was the sand yachting – I’d never tried it before and it was so exciting.”
One of the Leaders, Grace Groves, said: “This was a huge adventure for the girls – some are only seven and have never been away without their parents before. It was such an amazing way for the girls to mark The Big Brownie Birthday and I don’t think they’ll ever forget it.”
