Launch parties in Nottinghamshire District for #WeAreGB125

6 Mar 2018

The GB groups in Nottinghamshire District kick-started their 125th birthday celebrations by throwing parties in the New Year.

With balloons, cake, games, challenges and party food, all the girls and leaders had a great time at the parties, which took place in the first two weeks back after Christmas - acting as launch events for what the district has planned to celebrate GB's special birthday in 2018.

GB Leader Zoe Ellis, from 2nd Nottingham, says 'A few of our groups have decided to do a number of 125 related challenges throughout the year and our parties were a great place to start them off. Stacking 125 plastic cups, decorating 125 biscuits and doing 125 skips on a rope is just a start to a year's worth of challenges and hope-themed events that we, as a district, have planned to celebrate 125 great years of GB.'
