A VARIETY of British events were organised for more than 60 rainbows, brownies and guides so they could celebrate The Queen's Diamond Jubilee with a special funday on the Beaconfield campsite, Monument Lane, Lickey.
Welly-wanging, tea relays, hot potato, crown making, a royal scavenger hunt, a water battle and making a finger-painted mural were among the activities. The girls also enjoyed a picnic for lunch as part of the funday, which was single-handedly organised by Emma Bennett, 15, and Amy Griffiths, 17, members of the local senior section group.
Debbie Lawson, the Girl Guides' District Commissioner for Longbridge, said: "Both girls have worked extremely hard, and everyone - girls and leaders - had a fantastic day."
Emma said: "Everybody really enjoyed themselves on this wonderful day and all girls went home with a smile on their faces, which is all we wanted."
The girls were nominated for, and won, a Birmingham City Council Record of Achievement Award for their efforts.
They will be receiving their accolade from the Lord Mayor on July 17.
