We, as parents, girls and friends of 1st Broxburn Girls Brigade, are petitioning to support the continuation of the current company at Broxburn Parish church.

The Girls Brigade is an organisation which provides fun and learning for girls of all ages in a Christian environment. Our daughters thrive on the varied, engaging and exciting programme which is delivered by the officers and young leaders. This programme enables them to deepen their understanding of Christianity, develop transferable skills which will help them in all areas of their lives, and spend time learning with and from each other. Meeting up with girls from other schools on a weekly basis enables them to form wider friendships which encourage and enhance their Christian values. For many girls it is their only connection with the church and gives them a good grounding in which their faith may grow. All of this is only made possible by the hard work and dedication of the officers who week in and week out give up their time to engage and encourage our girls. They are an amazing team who, with Alison Turnbull at the helm, provide us with a unique, well run and safe environment to guide, nurture and support our girls to flourish.

We are very concerned about the communication we received outlining that the company is currently unable to confirm what is happening after the summer break. If the company was not to continue this would be a travesty for our families individually and for the community as a whole. We ask that the Kirk Session and Girls Brigade Scotland, working with the officers from 1st Broxburn Girls Brigade, find a way to ensure that this highly effective company continues so it can develop further opportunities to touch the hearts and lives of the girls in our community.

Please support us by signing this petition and writing your own letter of support through the 1st Broxburn Girls Brigade e-mail address as this will give strength to the current situation.
