YOUNG and old joined together to celebrate 50 years of a Cheddar girls' group.
The 2nd Cheddar Brownies held a birthday party on Saturday to mark the occasion and past and present members tucked into a buffet and looked through old photograph albums.
The original brown owl Elfie Deane also went along to the event and gave a speech thanking the women who attended and said how good it was to see that the pack was still going 50 years on.
Current brown owl Vicky Sweet said: "A lot of past leaders have kept in touch with us. There were only one or two who weren't able to make it so we had a very good turn out."
