Were you part of Girls’ Brigade? Can you recognise yourself in this photo? Girls’ Brigade is calling for past and present members, relatives and friends to join them for a one-off celebration.
To mark 120 years, Leeds District Girls’ Brigade are inviting everyone involved to a tea and service in Drighlington.
The event promises to be a memorable one and is a chance to thank past members for their contribution, said Leeds District Commissioner Julie Roper.
Mrs Roper, 47, has been in the Girls’ Brigade since she was five because her dad was the Captain of the Boys’ Brigade in Drighlington.
“It’s been a big part of my life. I am looking forward to the event and trying to encourage past members and their friends and relatives to come along.”
The Girls’ Brigade was started in 1893 as a result of women responding to the needs of girls in their local community, and today there are eight groups in the Leeds area.
The celebration will take place on Sunday, October 20 with a time to chat and catch up over a cup of tea at 4pm, followed by a celebration service at 6pm at Drighlington Methodist Church.
