Brownies throw royal themed celebration to mark the Queen's 90th birthday

Brownies decked out the Old Windsor Guide headquarters in handcrafted bunting to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.

Girls from the 1st Old Windsor, 3rd Old Windsor, 2nd Datchet and 2nd Windsor Brownies had planned to hold a garden party on Saturday but had to take refuge in the Straight Road headquarters due to torrential rain.

Undeterred by the weather, they carried on the party by taking part in royal themed activities which included learning how to curtsy and wave like Her Majesty.

They also rustled up a banquet of food which included platters of sandwiches and hand-decorated cakes and biscuits.

With more than 50 girls Brownies enjoying the festivities, parents and Ranger Guide volunteers also stepped in to help make the event a royal success.

Michelle Rankin, Brown Owl leader for 1st Old Windsor Brownies, said: “It seemed fitting to throw a party as The Royal Family has such a part to play with girlguiding.”
