KIRKINNER Brownies made a very special trip to Edinburgh on Saturday 9th June to present a Jubilee book to Brian Coutts, on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen at the Palace of Holyrood House.
The book was made up of personal pictures and messages from each of the twelve brownies as well as photographs of events the girls have participated in throughout the Jubilee Year. Kerys Milven had the honour of presenting the book.
Whilst in the Palace the brownies and their leaders re-made their promise with palace staff who had been in Girl Guiding in their youth before going on a tour of the palace. The Jubilee book will be collected by Her Majesty when she comes to Scotland in a few weeks time.
The brownies also took the opportunity to see Edinburgh Castle, walk the Royal Mile, Visit St Giles Cathedral, Our Dynamic Earth and The Scottish Parliament. They were given a VIP tour of the parliament and given full access to the debating chamber where they had their photograph taken in front of the First Minister, Alex Salmond’s seat.
Travelling by train was also a first time experience for some of the brownies. Although a very long day out, a very memorable one for all those who went.
