De-fib Training

We are most grateful to the George Bairstow Charitable Trust for supplying CLCGB with a grant for a new defibrillator. Training was provided to attendees at our AGM last month, alongside some basic first aid, including to some of our young members!

The George Bairstow Charitable Trust aims to empower local communities to make a difference by supporting the provision of Emergency Aid; Volunteering among young people; and the enhancement of skills among young people.

The defibrillator will be available for national events and additional training can be arranged where necessary.

Queens Birthday Parade

Thanks to one of our hard-working volunteers we have been offered a fantastic opportunity to take part in this years Queens Birthday Parade taking place on Saturday 8th June 2019, 30 places have been offered to be part of the Youth pen for the Trooping of the Colour.

To make it as fair as possible we are offering 6 places to each Region (North East, North West, Midlands, Wales/South and Ulster) on a first come first served basis. We will only accept definite responses due to the tight timescale on this. 

We suggest each Region selects under its own criteria but aim at the YTeam and JTC sections. Full uniform to be worn.

Please note any costs incurred are at the expense of the individual/Company.

Names of selected attendees to be sent to NHQ by 10th May 2019.

Further information will be circulated when available.

Capt Shirley Taylor RIP

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a stalwart of both CGB and later CLCGB. Capt Shirley Taylor, retired, has sadly left this earth. 

Shirley had been O.I.C. at both St Paul's CLCGB, Haswell and St Saviour's CGB prior to the amalgamation of the Girls and Lads unit.

Shirley remained a staunch supporter of Brigade through the remainder of her life.

Tributes have been flooding in with Judith Lane saying "Oh my. So sorry to hear and such a shock. Thoughts are with the family . Take care from John and Judith", and Jan Mason saying "Such sad news, lm in total shock ... RIP Aunty Shirley ... love to our Kelly and Alison x"

Please join us in offering prayers for Shirley, her family and many friends.  Rest in peace Shirley, you will be greatly missed. A true Lady who inspired and supported many of the Brigade family.

The funeral for Shirley will take place Wednesday 1st May, 10:30am. at St Paul's Church, Haswell.
