Girls' Brigade News

Earlier in the term, the Explorers have were thinking about features of Autumn, including harvest time. To show our gratitude to God for the plentiful harvest we invited all the company to donate an item to the Alton Foodbank. On Saturday 17th October nine girls, parents and leaders met in the Market Square to deliver the food we had collected.

Thank you for your support at the BB and GB enrolment service on 18th October. The church was packed with young people and their families, in addition to the regular members of the congregation. Members of the Girls' Brigade led the prayers and the bible readings were delivered by members of the Boys' Brigade. We were fortunate with the weather for the march from the Butts to Church and back afterwards — the 'just-in-case' coats were not needed!

The weather was still remarkably mild when we joined the parade and Town Remembrance Service at the Cairn on 8th November, once more marching behind the BB band.

We will be finishing the month with a stall at the church Christmas Fair on 28th November, so girls and staff will be busy wrapping donated toiletries this evening in readiness.

We will finish for the term on Monday 7th December with an evening of Carols & Coffee in aid of Action for Children. Do come along and join us from 6.30pm in the Church Hall.

Nancy Buck (Explorer Leader)
