Online stores coming soon
We are only weeks away until the launch of Online Stores. This new system will allow you to view stock levels, place orders, and track your order through the process and pay for your goods, via credit/debit card/paypal or by cheque. Online Stores will be available to order from 8 July 2013.
Over the next couple of weeks we will be publishing guidance on how to order and will be published here.
This is one feature we have built following feedback from our online survey which we ran earlier in the year. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact NHQ.
Doors closing at Platt
It is with sad regret that Platt company is closing due to a shortage of members. The church are organising a celebration service for Don Nuttall who has served the Brigade solidly for 76 years, man and boy. This will be on 8 Sept 2013 at Platt church at the 11.30 service. We want to inform as many of the Brigaders who were at Platt, and anyone else who wishes to attend. There will be refreshments after the service. If you would like to attend please let NHQ know.
Reminder NF2 Forms
As we are coming up to the camping season we would like to remind companies if you have any non leaders attending, to complete the NF2 form and return to NHQ to ensure everyone is covered by our insurance. The cost was risen earlier in the year to £5 per person. To use the latest form click the following link: NF2 Holiday/Camp Helpers Disclosure Form

NF2 Holiday/Camp helpers nomination form
We have published a revised NF2 form (Holiday/Camp helpers nomination form). This form must be completed by adults attending Brigade camps/holidays who are not Officers, Warrant Officers or registered helpers for inclusion on CL&CGB insurance.
The cost of insuring non members has been held for several years. Following a review of the actual costs the price has raised to £5 per person to cover the insurance cost.
