Union Mills Brownies and Rainbows celebrated their 50th and 30th anniversaries during their special May Day event.

The young girls celebrated their clubs’ significant milestones in the glorious sunshine with friends and family.

As part of the May Day event, they took part in traditional May pole dancing with Ellie Baines being crowned as this year’s Flower Princess and Isla Collister being crowned as May Queen.

Original leaders of the groups presented the crowns to the girls.

Throughout the event, which took place at Union Mills Chapel, people could view photographs on display of the groups which have been taken over the last 30 to 50 years.

The Brownie pack, made up of girls between seven and 11, formed in 1969 with leaders Margaret Halliday and Margaret Dunn.

Today’s leaders are Alison Barnes and Kirsty Cassidy.

The Rainbow Guide Unit, the first in the island, was set up in 1989 by Liz Jones, Alison and Kirsty.
