GIRL Guides are preparing to celebrate their centenary.
Every Girlguiding unit is now gearing up for the 100th birthday of the guides.
The Girl Guides formed a year after they had ‘turned up’ at the first Boy Scout Rally at Crystal Palace in 1909.
The Huddersfield Ramsden Division has a programme called Adventure 100 which involves taking part in activities from creating sensory gardens to white-water rafting.
But this weekend they are gearing up for the launch party, where every Girl Guide in the area will get together to celebrate.
The event will take place this weekend at the Rams Stadium in Dewsbury with Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Rangers and Leaders getting together.
The older girls have already been given special centenary scarves to wear on the day, while others have been making rugs to sit on in the stadium.
Emma Forrest, from the Huddersfield Ramsden Division, said: “It promises to be a magical and moving evening and is probably the most ambitious event ever staged by the West Yorkshire South guides.
“It will include a special performance of Herbert’s Dream by France-based company Quidams.”
The event is due to be attended by the mayor of Kirklees, who will meet many of the local members and speak to them about why they enjoy being involved with guiding.
