Canoeing, climbing and creating their own fairytale land were just some of the activities which Brownies took part in during an adventure weekend held in north Norfolk.

More than 70 Brownies and their leaders transformed the Hautbois Centre in Coltishall into the land of Boggles and Twiggles - characters from the magical children's books written by Tom Blofeld, local author and creator of the BeWILDerwood play park based near Wroxham.

The Brownies also got to try their hand at abseiling, climbing, canoeing and raft building.

Event organiser Sarah Darney said: “It's just magical to see all the Brownies trying out different adventurous activities, some for the first time, and throwing themselves into the BeWILDerwood story with such imagination.”

The event was one of many taking place across the UK this year to mark 100 years of Guiding.
