World Thinking Day is a celebration of ten million girls worldwide that has taken place on every 22 February since 1926. It is a day for all Guides and Girl Scouts to think of each other and celebrate their sisters all around the world.  The date was chosen because it’s the joint birthday of Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the scout and guide movement, and his wife Olave, who served as World Chief Guide.

Our thanks go to local schools for allowing our members to attend in their girlguiding uniforms to celebrate this special occasion.  World Thinking Day often falls during the half term week so members were particularly excited to be able to wear uniforms of the sections to which they belong.

One Brownie said she was the only girl in her class to wear brownie uniform for World Thinking da and all her class mates were amazed to see her badges and wanted to know how she earned them. She said she felt very proud showing them off.

Another of our members was the only one to wear guide uniform in her class, she explained she’s part of 1st Tamworth Guides and that she wants to wear her uniform to school again because she felt very proud wearing it.
