Brierley Community Partnership

A unanimous decision by the people of Brierley to break away from the Grimethorpe Shafton and Brierley Community Partnership was taken on Tuesday night at a meeting at the Methodist Chapel. An excellent turnout decided that Brierley should form its own Independent Community Partnership in Brierley for the Brierley people. The general feeling of the meeting was that the Grimethorpe partnership was not doing enough for Brierley

Congratulations to Mr Edwin Hambleton and the Brierley Boys Brigade.

Yorkshire County Battalion competitions

For the past twelve months the boys from the Brigade have entered every event in the competition, and for the first time in their twenty three years history, came out on top, gaining more marks than any other company in the whole of Yorkshire County. The Junior section, made up of boys between seven and eleven year olds, competed in the team games which included five a side football, figure marching and a Bible and general knowledge quiz. They were placed first in two of the events and gained second and third place in the other two. The Company section competed in five a side football, Bible quiz ( which they won for the sixth year in succession ), drill, cross country, table tennis and chess. The Senior section gained first and second place in five a side football and table tennis respectively. Mr Mike Dixon the Yorkshire County Battalion president, presented the boys with the Battalion Shield at a parade service conducted by the Reverend Gill Newton at the Methodist chapel. Mr Dixon spoke of the ever boys ever increasing success over the last few years, and of his pleasure in presenting the shield to a small village company. Mr Hambleton would like to thank all the boys parents, church members and friends, whose support, he says, is a real source of encouragement to the Brigade


Summer school

The Methodist Chapel held a summer school week recently for 5 to 11 year olds. The children enjoyed games and singing, and a good time was had by all. Ernest Broome presented Lauren Pugh, Erica Hutley, Scott Lawton, Anna Good, John Lawton and Elizabeth Good with medals at the end of the week
