Mount View Girls Brigade 75th celebrations

Thursday, July 16, 2009

Meg was delighted to attend the 75th anniversary celebrations of Mount View Methodist Girls Brigade. She was a member of the Mount View Brigade from the age of 5 until she left home at 18 to go to university. The weekend celebrations included an evening with entertainment and an exhibition of photographs of events through the years. On Sunday morning there was a church service, which included a parade of the Brigade.


Meg said:


"It was a lovely occasion with members from different eras coming along and talking of their experiences. Everyone had a lot of fun in the Brigade, taking part in a wide range of activities including the annual camp. The leaders of the Girls Brigade devote a lot of time to the girls, providing a positive experience and helping them learn new skills. It has been estimated that over 75 years as many as 3000 girls have benefited from this one Brigade."


Amongst the guests was one of the original members, Joan, who was 9 when she joined in 1934. There were also 31 former May Queens, including Meg who was May Queen in 1974, the annual May Day concert started in 1944 and continues up to the present day.


The Girls’ Brigade is a Christian, international charity working alongside girls and young women of every background, ability and culture. Since its foundation in 1893, the Brigade has become known worldwide as an interesting and challenging provider of activities, skills, care and Christian love for hundreds of thousands of young people. The Brigade is led by Christian women from local churches, trained volunteers who are committed to providing a regular time to meet for activities and skills for girls and young women.
