RAINBOWS, Brownies and Guides from Hertfordshire played their part in helping the country celebrate 100 years of the Girl Guide movement this weekend.
Guides from Girlguiding Hertfordshire came together at the on Saturday, and put on a spectacular show at the University of Hertfordshire, in Hatfield.
The show was one of many events held across the country marking the start of Girlguiding UK's centenary celebrations, which coincided with the day in 1909 that a group of girls turned up unannounced at a boy scout rally in London and demanded entry.
Sue Rees, a WGC guide leader, said: "All the girls were fantastic, from the littlest rainbow to the more senior guides, they were all grinning from ear to ear with what was going on and what they were a part of; a celebration taking place across the country.
