Girls' Brigade Engaland and Wales
Our GB company is part an international youth organisation "The Girls' Brigade".
GB was started in 1893 in Ireland as a weekday activity for girls attending Sunday School or Church. In 1959, Girls’ Brigade of Ireland amalgamated with it sister organisations, The Girls’ Guildry of Scotland and the Girls’ Life Brigade of England. It is now an international organisation operating in over 50 countries around the world adapting the programme and activities to suit local environment and needs but each sharing the same aim.
