Nearly 200 youngsters enjoyed a party in Weston to celebrate 100 years of the junior section of the West of England District of the Boys’ Brigade.

Youngsters from North Somerset and beyond got together to enjoy a fun-packed day at Puxton Park.

The children got to explore the farm and witness a number of displays.

Organisers Emma Dare and Jacquie Boyer said: “It was a fantastic day and great to see so many of our members with smiles on their faces as they enjoyed everything from water zorbing to the falconry displays.”

The Boys’ Brigade caters for children from the age of five to 18.

The West of England District celebrated its centenary in 2014, but this was an event specifically for its eight to 11-year-old age group’s centenary.

Until 1917, boys had to wait until their twelfth birthday to join.
