Girls’ group centenary

People who have fond memories of a girls’ group are invited to get in touch with organisers of its 100th birthday celebrations.

Higham Ferrers Girls’ Brigade 1st company is celebrating its centenary this year and a service of thanksgiving and a faith tea will be held in the summer to mark the milestone. The organisers are inviting people to submit exhibits for a display they are calling ‘Fond Memories of my Time in the Girls’ Brigade.’

They want people with photographs and stories to come forward so their nostalgia can be included in the event.

They are also hoping that people who have moved away from the area who are former members of the brigade will come forward so they can be invited to the celebrations.

Anyone who can help or who would like to be involved in the organising can call Jane Tomlinson on 01933 317582 or Lisa Adams on 01933 313417 for more information.
