So many friendships are forged in the Brownies and Guides and it was certainly the case for this lot in 1989.

It is 28 years since this event took place and it saw Girl Guides from Hartlepool pictured at an International Camp at Kirkleatham.

Do you recognise anyone in the photos from 1989 which showed them preparing meals, lapping up the atmosphere, and making friends with international colleagues?
