Double celebrations at Weston-super-Mare

10 Aug 2018

The members and friends of 1st Weston-super-Mare group recently celebrated both GB's 125th birthday and their group's 75th birthday. 

n:spire members Katie and Phoebe organised a 125th celebration event on 12 May 2018, which was attended by past and current GB members. The guests were invited to share their memories and view a display of photos and GB memorabilia, as well as enjoy a buffet lunch. 

The Mayor and Mayoress, Mrs Jos Holder and Mrs Roz Willis, attended and were presented with flowers in GB colours and a few of the current members sung before an official cake was cut.

Leader Sarah Lawrence says 'We also marked our own 75th anniversary at this event, and the following day at our monthly parade service.'

The photo of the cake being cut shows 1st Weston-super-Mare's current Team Leader Jane King, along with Joy Ridley (the original captain) and Avril Wilson and Marion Smith.
