Helen Kimberley is the Captain of our 1st Redditch Company.
At 1st Redditch, girls can expect to make new friends, learn and experience new things and have lots of fun. Along with this there is a short time of Bible based devotions, where the girls learn more about God and the Christian faith. When the girls reach a certain age, they have the chance to go on weekend and annual holidays with the rest of the company and with the 1st Redditch Boys' brigade.
Fundraising and subscriptions:
We charge a weekly subscription of £1.50 which can now be paid for in advance to make it easier. The money raised helps pay for badges, awards, badge work and fees that we have to pay to GB Central office and towards offsetting the costs of some trips and events throughout the year.
In addition to this we also organise fund raising events throughout the year; such as bag packs, skittle evenings and quizzes.
- Explorers section (5-8 yrs)
- Junior Section (8-11yrs)
- Senior Section (11-14yrs)
- Brigader Section (14-18yrs)
At 1st Redditch Girls Brigade we have had much success over the years both in the company, and outside the company. With many girls taking on leadership training with the company and becoming advanced young leaders. We also have 1 Brigader who has been chosen for the 2012 Olympics in cycling.
