Boys’ Brigade aim for new faces

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

RUIS­LIP Boys’ Brigade re­launched, at South Ruis­lip Methodist Church ear­lier this month, in a bid to gain new mem­bers.

The 2nd Ruis­lip Boys’ Brigade Com­pany has been in Ruis­lip since 1942 but had to sus­pend ac­tiv­i­ties last year to con­sider their next step.

Peter Humm, cap­tain, said: “The rea­son we had to close is purely down to run­ning out of boys. We lost too many and once it went un­der five and they all didn’t turn up ev­ery week we de­cided it was time to do some­thing dif­fer­ent.”

The re­launch saw a joint event with the Boys and Girls’ Brigades with fun ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren aged seven to 11 such as pool, crafts and a bouncy cas­tle.
