Printable Version Boys Brigade in Earby


Earby Boys Brigade



During the 1960's Norrman Heap, Brian Tipler and Derek Ashworth organised these annual camps for members of the Boys Brigade in Earby, without their hard work and dedication a number of us would probably not been able to enjoy the week's holdiday away from home each year.

With the help of several others we've put together the names. I hope they are all correct. The Brigade, attached to Mount Zion Baptist Church, had many members during the 1960's and 70's and had a positive influence on many lives. This was the first annual weeks camp in North Wales.
