Celebrating 125 years of the CLCGB

Will I have fun?

Will I try new activities and challenges?
Will I be welcome?

Yes, Yes, Yes, absolutely yes and all with those of a similar age in a safe, well run environment.
All our leaders are vetted, CRB checked and follow the Anglican church ethos.

So try us out, the journey starts here: Find Your Local Group

“It feels nice to be part of a group who help each other and are friendly. It makes me feel special.” 

Maddison, aged 10.

What do the clergy think?

“I have been involved with CLCGB since 1969 and have seen how precious it was and what a difference it made in my Parish, All Saints & Martyrs Langley, which had a huge Company. It brings what young people need to young people, it gives them friendship, it gives them fellowship and fun."

Bishop Jack Nichols

Bumper Edition of “The Brigade”

Headquarters are now looking for articles/reports to put into the bumper 120th Celebration “The Brigade” Magazine.  If you have anything that you can share if you could email Claire/Zoe or Alan in HQ it would be mostly appreciated.

CO’s and Treasurers

It is coming up to that time of year again to submit your account returns to NHQ.  Please can we try to ensure that these are returned by the due date, as delays cost the Brigade for extra additional auditing.  If you have any queries please contact Claire in NHQ.

Stores are closed this week for a stock take, Stores will re-open on Monday 4th July 2011.  If you require stock it will be sent as soon as Stores re-opens.

120th Anniversary and Facebook updates

We have setup a new Facebook group for Ex Members and Friends of the Brigade.  If you know anyone who has been in the CLCGB please add them as a friend to the group found at CLCGB Ex Members and Friends.

Online Donations – Your Brigade Needs You.

With funds running low we have signed up with Paypal to be able to receive donations online.   To help the Brigade, you can now donate online, enabling the Brigade to continue its role within your communities. Whatever the amount you may wish to donate, we will be extremely grateful for any gifts.  Unless donors prefer otherwise, donors' names will appear in a special donations appreciation page on our website.  If you pay income tax CLCGB can claim back the tax paid at the basic rate – that means CLCGB gets and extra 20p for every £1.00 you give in donations.  Click here to donate online.

Manchester Regiment “Roundup June 2011” online

The latest edition of the Manchester Regiment’s “Roundup” is now online, linked from the homepage of CLCGB website.

Online Calendar

Coming soon to the website

Membership Online

We are looking at the opportunities to build a secure membership database to complement our current website and training website.  This will give us a huge tool to enable companies to update their members’ records online, and eventually we are hoping that annual returns could even be filed online one day.  This is in the very early stages and more information will be posted on the progress of this development, as we will need volunteers to assist developing and testing the systems.  The Girl Guides, JLGB and Scouts have similar systems which work extremely well and data can be available instantly on a laptop/mobile phone.
