Nailsea Girls Brigade turns 21

FORMER Girls’ Brigade members are being sought for an invitation to join a group’s 21st birthday celebration on January 14.

It is hoped many of the 300 past and present members of the 1st Nailsea Company,

including officers and helpers, will attend a special service at Nailsea Methodist Church, in Silver Street, at 3.30pm.

There will also be a reunion and rededication, followed by tea and a barn dance.

Brigade Lieutenant Corinne Day said: “We are looking forward to our special day and we hope that as many former members as possible will return for the reunion.”

Brigaders living as far afield as Australia and New Zealand have contacted organisers to wish the event success, as well as one in France.

And former members will be travelling from London, Devon and Norfolk to attend.
