EVENTS commemorating the foundation of 1st Port Sunlight Boys Brigade will take place later this month.

Taking place on Sunday, September 30, it will start with a march from Boys Brigade HQ at 2.40pm, followed by service at Christ Church, United Reformed Church in the village at 3pm.  

The service will include laying up of the colours.

Afterwards, refreshments will be served and there will be a chance to catch up with old boys of the brigade, which closed earlier this year.

Group spokesman Peter Huxley told the Globe: "The Company was founded in 1900 and provided many boys with life skills, education, community and a foundation for adulthood.

"In that time many volunteers worked with the Company, and we are thankful of all their support for the 118 years it was in existence.

"The community still exists today as friends via social media and many of the Old Boys are planning to attend travelling from far and wide to celebrate what the Company meant to each and every one of us.

"If you have served or been associated in any way with the Company you are welcome to come along."
