120th Celebration of Bebbington Company
St. Andrew, Bebington Company No. 219 has recently celebrated its 120th Birthday
The Company celebrated by taking part in the all age Church Service on Sunday 3rd November 2013.
This was attended by past and current members of the Company – no founder members could be found - some of whom took part in the Service which had the theme of the Brigade badge running through it. There was also a video showing past and recent activities of the Company some of which were in the early 1900s. There was much appreciated support from members of National Headquarters, the Regiment and musicians from Litherland Company of the Liverpool Battalion.
After the Service there was a display of photographs, instruments, past records etc. in the Church Hall at which the Brigade Members were supported by many from the congregation including the new Incumbent all of whom enjoyed hot and cold refreshments.
The Company, having been enrolled on 24th October 1893, believe that they are the longest continuously running company in the Brigade having unbroken service since its formation – Unless somebody knows differently.

Online Stores update
Following feedback on Online Stores we have made the online experience more user friendly. We have created new categories, so it is easier to locate items.
When logging into Online Stores you will now see less items, i.e. Uniform, and within that category you will see Dresses, Skirts, etc.
There is an issue with invoicing, after the order has been submitted NHQ will parcel up your order and weigh it, then will return the invoice by email with postage included which currently is added to the line "Email confirmation will be sent". We are working hard to resolve this issue.
