It has been 50 years since 2nd Swaffham Brownies was launched to give girls a place to learn new skills and make friends.
And now the pack's current crop of 26 youngsters has celebrated the anniversary in style, and welcomed many former leaders back for a birthday party.
Clare Smith, pack leader, said the girls read a history of the pack and sang traditional songs.
She said: 'It was a fabulous celebration completed with a renewal of our guiding promise.
'We were fortunate to be in the presence of many old leaders including Janet Wilson, Bridget Knock, current district commissioner, Tracey Clements, Jackie Strafford and the county commissioner for Norfolk girl guiding Pat Pinnington.'
