The First Minister joined her old Brownie group, 5th Dreghorn Brownies, and told them if they stick at Brownies and school they’ll learn that they can do anything in the world!
The First Minister said:
“I was delighted to visit my old Brownie unit.
“Organisations such as the Brownies provide young people with a wide range of opportunities that nurture and develop their ambitions, their sense of achievement and the skills they need to succeed in life.
“My message to the girls was – aim high. Wee girls from Dreghorn can achieve anything!”

Sue Walker, Girlguiding Scotland Chief Commissioner, said: “It’s was really inspiring having the First Minister come along to talk to the Brownies and showing the girls that the sky’s the limit.
“This shows us, like the First Minister said, that being a Brownie gives girls the chance to gain valuable life skills, discover their full potential and help them shoot for the stars.”
