Bumper Edition of â€œThe Brigadeâ€
Headquarters are now looking for articles/reports to put into the bumper 120th Celebration â€œThe Brigadeâ€ Magazine.Â If you have anything that you can share if you could email Claire/Zoe or Alan in HQ it would be mostly appreciated.
COâ€™s and Treasurers
It is coming up to that time of year again to submit your account returns to NHQ.Â Please can we try to ensure that these are returned by the due date, as delays cost the Brigade for extra additional auditing.Â If you have any queries please contact Claire in NHQ.
Stores Stock Take
Stores are closed this week for a stock take, Stores will re-open on Monday 4th July 2011.Â If you require stock it will be sent as soon as Stores re-opens.

Coming soon to the website
We are looking at the opportunities to build a secure membership database to complement our current website and training website.Â This will give us a huge tool to enable companies to update their membersâ€™ records online, and eventually we are hoping that annual returns could even be filed online one day.Â 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.Â The Girl Guides, JLGB and Scouts have similar systems which work extremely well and data can be available instantly on a laptop/mobile phone.
