Activities over the weekend included a silent disco, bouncy castles, cake decorating, sand art, build a bear, scavenger hunt, crown making, decorating bags and pebbles, lots of crafts, parachute games and much more.

The weather was kind for the Rainbow Fun Day but inclement weather on Sunday for the Brownie Fun Day did not dampen the girls’ enthusiasm or fun.

Alison Williams, Girlguiding Moray County Commissioner, said: "It was so nice to see all of the girls enjoying a large scale face-to-face event and doing all of the thing that they enjoy so much."

Scarlett, a Rainbow from Forres, declared it to be "the best day ever", while Buckie Rainbow Millie said "it was super, super fun".

Janet McDonald, who led the organising team for the event, said: "It was great to get back together after the pandemic for a fantastic Rainbow and Brownie event.

"I loved seeing all the smiling faces and the joy they had running about in the sun and the rain. I was asked tonight at Rainbows and Brownies "When’s the next fun day?".

Events like these would not be possible without the scores or volunteer leaders throughout the county.
