As our BB and GB website pages explain, our Boys' and Girls' Brigades offer a great deal to young people. Friendship, fun, adventure, games, sports, camp, Duke of Edinburgh's Award, band, crafts are just some of the things on offer. Both organisations are part of the church and so the girls and boys learn about Christ and join in worship as an integral part of their activities.

The Boys' Brigade is looking to recruit more boys in all sections:

Anchor Boys School Years 1 to 3 (ages 5-8) (6-7.30pm Fridays)
Junior Section: School Years 4-6 (ages 8-11) (6-7.30pm Fridays)
Company Section and Seniors: School Years 7-12 (ages 11-17) (7.45-9.30pm Fridays)

The Girls' Brigade would love to have some more girls in their Explorer Section for girls in School Years R-3 (ages 4 1/2 -8) (6pm Mondays)

Do you know anyone with children in these age groups? Could you encourage a boy or girl to come along and give BB or GB a try? They'd be very welcome and would find plenty to enjoy. Company and Senior boys also have band (which is for GB girls, too) and informal activities including table tennis and tuck on Wednesday evenings.
For further details please see the BB and GB pages on this website and / or:

For GB contact Kym Burgess on 07810 808944 or turn up at 6pm on a Monday at Alton Methodist Church.
