125th celebrations begin for Northamptonshire District

30 May 2018

Northamptonshire District GB has begun celebrating GB's 125th birthday with a weekend of exciting activities.

District Team Leader Suzanne Johnson writes...

'The last weekend of April had been fixed in many GB leaders' heads for a long time to launch our 125 celebrations! And nobody went away disappointed – what a weekend everyone had!

'It began on Friday 27 April 2018 with a shout-out on Chris Evans' Radio 2 Breakfast Show. More than 100 girls attended on the Saturday afternoon taking part in many activities including team challenges, making mocktails, some learning Scottish dancing and a disco where all the girls and leaders did the Macarena! After a busy afternoon the girls stayed for a sleepover in the evening, well that may not be the right word! I think everyone managed 2 hours' sleep!

'On the Sunday we held our service of celebration with more than 100 girls present with their leaders, along with the Mayor and Mayoress of Wellingborough, GB's Director Jules Murdy, and also past GB members. The service was based around Hope 125 with the girls performing a flash mob, ribbon dance, Bible drama and a fantastic rendition of Children of Hope.

'One leader commented that the leaders who make up the district team are total nutters! As District Team Leader of those "nutters" I know everyone worked so hard to ensure this weekend was a success. It was an amazing experience for all of those who attended, the memories that we all went away with along with the friendships made by leaders and girls. It really shows that Girls’ Brigade is a special organisation, celebrating, building and giving hope... here for another 125 years.'
