It’s ‘kumbaya’ from St Albans Brownies as they see in their 100th year with toasted marshmallows around the campfire.

On Monday 1st St Albans Brownies will be hosting a celebratory campfire singsong. With seven units attending the event there are expected to be over 180 Brownies and leaders welcoming a century of service in St Albans, with 1st St Albans being the city’s original Brownie club.

The event will take place at Sandridge Scout Hut from 6-7pm, where two of the company will be initiating traditional campfire songs, accompanied with toasted marshmallows for a truly authentic Brownie celebration.

Leader Lucy Davies has been part of 1st St Albans for 43 years and said: “I thought it would be a nice activity to have a traditional Girlguiding campfire and wanted to invite another local Brownie unit to share the experience.”

The day is set to add to their list of “wonderful experiences” from years of Brownie service.
