YOUNG girls from across Droitwich got together to remember Guides and Brownies all over the world on the birthdays of Lord and Lady Baden-Powell.

Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Rangers, Young Leaders, Guiders and Unit Helpers from Girl Guiding Droitwich all took part in Thinking Day 2005 yesterday.

Ten groups of girls from four units - 1st Chawson Barns, 1st Wychbold, 1st Ombersley and 1st Tibberton all met together to play games, make crafts, taste food and sing songs from India, Switzerland, Mexico and the UK - the four Guiding residential centres.

And at schools in Droitwich, including St Joseph's School, girls wore their Brownie uniform instead of school uniform.

Lord and Lady Baden-Powell founded the Girl Guiding movement.

Other meetings during the week will see girls making their promise to become enrolled members of 2nd and 3rd Droitwich Guides, Brownies from a pack in Bromsgrove Division visiting 3rd Droitwich Brownies on their meeting night, and 2nd Droitwich Brownies being presented with a World Guiding Badge.

A young leader will also be working towards the prestigious Queens Guide Award organising an international night for 5th Droitwich Brownies and 1st Droitwich Guides who will meet jointly, and 1st Droitwich Brownies are raising money for the Tsunami appeal by holding a sponsored memory recall game.
