A guiding association is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

4th Fulwood St Peter’s Rainbows, Brownies and Guides first opened in 1976, and to mark the occasion, Friends of St Peters organised a fun day and party.

Held at St Peter's School, there were plenty of activities for youngsters, as Lancashire Police and Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service allowed children to sit in their vehicles, and Grasshoppers provided rugby coaching.

Families also had fun on the giant inflatables, donated by Skillscc.com.

As part of the anniversary preparations, the Brownies designed a special badge and all members have completed a series of activities through the 4th Fulwood Ruby challenge.

Carol Phillips, Guide leader, said: “Throughout the last 40 years our units have been full of lively, enthusiastic girls having fun at weekly meetings, going on special days out, sleepovers, holidays and camps.
“We are lucky to have a lovely meeting place and so many dedicated leaders.
“It has been wonderful to see so many girls progress through the units, develop new friendships, learn new skills, gain confidence and have just have lots of fun.
“The girls have enjoyed the 40th anniversary and doing the 4th Fulwood Rugby Challenge. One of the challenges was to help other people, so we held a danceathon, raising £636 to be split equally between St Catherine’s Hospice and Cash For Kids. Everyone had fun dancing to music from 1976 onwards.”

Fulwood St Peter's School also celebrated its ruby anniversary this year and held their own celebration earlier this month.
