Museum helps to celebrate Brownies’ 100th Birthday


19 May 2014

On Sunday 11 May, 400 local Brownies from the Dudley Division visited the Museum to celebrate their 100th anniversary and to enjoy a day out to remember.

The Dudley Division learnt how Brownies may have lived 100 years ago; they took part in an extra special Victorian school lesson about the history of Brownies and their uniforms; and the misbehaved Brownie leader got called up to the front of the classroom for the cane!

Brownies enjoyed taking part in the daily activities at the Museum - especially the street games - and finalised their celebrations with parade through our canalside village, singing traditional Brownie songs and waving their flags.

The day out to BCLM was one of several to celebrate the centenary. Dudley Division, part of the Girlguiding West Mercia, started in 1914, when the Brownie girlguides were known as Rosebuds. Brownies is for girls aged 7-10, and offers a varied weekly programme, including everything from stargazing and world issues, to abseiling, canoeing and zip wiring.
