Girls’ brigade

Sad to note that the 1st Wanstead company of Girls’ Brigade, which has met for 97 years, is to stop meeting because of falling rolls. The company has long met at Wanstead United Reformed Church, where other uniformed organisations will continue to meet. Should there be sufficient numbers of girls aged five and over who are interested in attending, the company might start meeting again, organisers say. (Wansteadium will pass on details if parents are interested in getting in touch – email wansteadium@gmail.com)

  1. so that’s the first wanstead scout and cub group plus the girl guides all gone now then. Sad indeed.


  2. Chris Colombus … Just to reassure you that Brownies, Guides and Rangers Guides are still alive and well in Wanstead and very strong, we have lots of members and could do with more volunteers to help us take in even more girls who are on our waiting lists. And our brothers and sisters in Beavers, Cubs and Scouts are also at excellent membership in Wanstead. Our biggest challenge is leaders but we are overcoming that with flexible leadership teams 🙂
