Rainbows from across Northumberland have been getting up close and personal with some furry friends as part of an animal experience.
A total of 195 Rainbows from all over Northumberland, including Blyth, Ponteland, Hexham, Alnwick and Berwick, went to the ‘animal fair’ on Saturday.
The girls, aged between five and seven, the youngest section of Girlguiding, had a fun day at Kirkley Hall Zoological Gardens, where they visited the zoo and got to meet and hold some furry and not so furry animals.
The girls also made animal themed crafts and enjoyed sports activities in the sports hall.
