A Brownie leader is celebrating after being presented with the highest award in girlguiding.
Sarah Graydon, a leader with the 1st Cramlington Brownies, received The Queen’s Guide Award for her work in the community.
The 22-year-old, from Cramlington, received the award from Northumberland county vice-president Pauline Brown at St Oswald’s House in Cramlington.
She completed a range of activities to achieve the award, including developing photography skills, becoming a peer educator for Girlguiding and organising a unit holiday to the Isle of Man.
Sarah said: “It was hard work passing all the elements for the award but most enjoyable.
“It was great that I could continue with this with my university Brownie unit on Merseyside as well as my home unit.”
Family, including her mother and Cramlington division commissioner Allison Graydon, and girlguiding friends attended the presentation evening.
Sarah was able to develop skills while contributing to guiding during her work towards the award.
