1st Measham Girls and Boys Brigade
Our Boys Brigade (BB) and Girls Brigade (GB) groups normally meet every Monday night during term time, from 6:15 pm until 7:45 pm. However due to Covid-19 brigade activities have moved online, see our Facebook page for more info. Some activities are returning as of Monday 21st September, please check with the Brigades Leaders for further information as we aim to start activities whilst maintaining the rules as per the Governments restrictions and guidance.
We welcome boys and girls from the age of 7 upwards.
Normal Monday night activities include sports and games, art and crafts, and tasks and projects involving the local community. Throughout the year we run a variety of outdoor and adventurous activities from building fires and cycling, to treasure hunts, orienteering and kayaking.
Normally at the end of May we run our annual summer camp. We vary year to year to cater for everyone, usually going under canvas but sometimes having an indoor accommodation option! Our favourite venues have become the Nottingham Holme Pierrepont National Water Sports Centre, Keswick in the Lake District, Beaumanor Hall in Leicestershire, and Edale in the Peak District.
Since both BB and GB are global organisations, throughout the year there are opportunities to join with regional or national activities. Our best success in recent years have been in the BB National Competition and the Leicestershire Battalion table tennis competition.
For those boys and girls aged 13 and over we run the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme.
