Members of Helensburgh's Girlguiding units paid their respects to “the country’s fallen heroes” this Remembrance Sunday.

The 1st, 2nd and 4th Helensburgh Brownies, 1st Helensburgh Guides and Western Division Rangers attended the Remembrance Day Service in Helensburgh Hermitage Park while the Brownies also considered the importance of poppies before crafting their own.

At the service, they were joined by leaders Claire Thomson, Aileen Baird, and Alison Ringrose.

A spokesperson said: “Girlguiding units paid homage to the country’s fallen heroes as they took part in the town’s Remembrance service on Sunday.

“In the lead up to Remembrance Sunday, the 4th Helensburgh Brownies took time to reflect on the significance of poppies during their unit meeting.

“The youngsters then got stuck into a craft activity – making their own poppy.”

The Brownies meet at the Guide Hall in John Street every Thursday from 6pm to 7.30pm and is welcoming new youngsters who wish to join.

The group is for girls aged seven to 10 and offers children a chance to attend weekly meetings where they can take part in activities, games, and adventures while working toward a range of different badges.

Next month three Helensburgh Brownie units will visit the cinema to see Disney’s latest animation, Wish.
