Boris Johnson Event
On Monday 19th January, Liz Butterfield (Governor) and two members from her Roxeth and Harrow company attended an event at City Hall, London. The invite came from Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, who wanted "to show [his] appreciation to those Londoners who are active in improving their local communities in Brent and Harrow, and whose sterling efforts often go unheralded." The event provided an opportunity for networking between different charities and voluntary organisations.

The CLCGB are looking for talented photographers to take some photos, either colour, or black and white of what Brigade means to you? We are encouraging all companies to slot this into your weekly programme and ask the children/young people/young leaders and adults to take pictures and send them in, for further information click here.

Join us in congratulating Hazel Dines (Brightlingsea) and Maynard Scott (retired Deputy Governor) who have both been awarded the Brigade Cross this year. This is CLCGB's highest decoration and is presented in recognition of exceptional service to the wider Brigade. Both have shown true dedication and we thank them for their commitment.
