Garstang Brownies helped create their own magic at a recent two day Festival.

The girls, aged five to ten, attended the Magic and Mayhem Festival at the Girlguiding Activity Centre in Clitheroe. It was one of three such events staged across the country, attracting 1500 Girlguiding members.

Members of the 5th Garstang Brownies had the opportunity to try circus skills, learn magic tricks and conduct science experiments.They then enjoyed a disco and a mass sleepover in a giant big top tent.

Brown Owl Louise Hill,said: “It was so nice to give the girls the chance to try things that they wouldn’t ordinarily do. They all said they had a great time!”
