WREXHAM Girlguiding are joining millions of girls and young women around the world today (February 22) to celebrate World Thinking Day 2024.

Girlguiding Cymru is part of the World Association of Girl Guides and Scouts, the largest voluntary Movement dedicated to girls and young women in the world, representing 8.8 million girls and young women in 153 countries.

This year's theme, Our World, Our Thriving Future, encourages girls to consider crucial global issues through the lens of environmental sustainability, gender equality, peace, and poverty.

Rhosddu Brownies (aged seven to 10 years) were learning about Girlguiding's World Centres, sampling foods from those countries and trying their hand at local traditional crafts.

Acton Rainbows (aged four to seven years) "flew" to Australia after making their passports, learning about Australia and Girl Guides there, making boomerangs, trying out lamingtons and then came home!

Bishop's Own Rainbows and Brownies explored ways, big and small, that they can live sustainably and have as positive an impact as possible on the world of tomorrow.

These events are just a few of the fun-filled evenings of activities taking place aimed at helping girls explore the theme and learn more about different cultures and communities around the world.

Finally, Wrexham Girlguiding members will proudly be wearing their uniforms at schools and colleges across the county, in celebration of coming together in a space where girls can be themselves, get creative, explore and, most of all, have fun.
