One of Bearsden's oldest brownie units have announced an urgent plea for volunteers.

1st Bearsden Brownies, which meet at the Guide Hall on Pendicle Road every Tuesday evening, have said that the role will provide a "new range of skills"

The unit is looking to ensure the future of the historic brownie group, which is over 100 years old, by signing up people to help provide "exciting adventures" for the group of girls that are aged between seven and 10.

The brownies are open to people from all backgrounds to get in touch, ranging from young adults looking for experience working with children or someone who has retired and would look to fill their time.

A spokesperson for Girlguiding Dunbartonshire said: “We welcome helpers from all stages of life, whether it’s a teenager keen to get experience of working with children, to a retiree looking for a new challenge.

“Being a volunteer will also help your CV stand out as you can learn a whole new range of skills – from problem-solving and leadership to event management and accounts.

“And not forgetting the crafts, games and badges that make every unit meeting special.

“1st Bearsden Brownie unit was formed in 1916 and we want to make sure it’s thriving for decades to come, but we need your help to do this.”
