Guides have hit a hundred and the Mayor of St Albans has done his bit to help them celebrate their centenary.
Girls and leaders from across Herts recently took part in an extra-special celebration camp to mark the 100th birthday of Guiding within the county.
They took part in a week-long camp at Phasels Wood with a host of girl-only adventures and activities including rock climbing, abseiling, geocaching and zorbing as well as trips out to the Hemel Hempstead Snow Centre, Frogmore Paper Mill and a canoe safari.
The Mayor of St Albans, Cllr Geoff Harrison, joined the celebrations with the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Herts, the Deputy Chair of the county council and several mayors from across the county.
The visitors came to participate in the main birthday festivities which included a magic show and afternoon tea.
