A boys’ club celebrated the 100th anniversary of the movement with a three-day camp in Kewstoke.

The Boys Brigade has been running for a century, and the Avon Battalion marked the occasion with games, sports and a camp.

The boys were also taught about space, when Jo Richardson from Space Detectives visited to give a talk.

The boys stayed at Kewstoke Village Hall, in Crookes Lane, for three days.

Mark Fuller, development worker for the Avon Battalion, which has groups in Weston, Bristol and Yate, said: “They all had a great time.

“The highlight was when Space Detectives came, and they made their own spacesuits and used virtual reality headsets.

“They all went home knackered by the end of the three days.”

The Weston group meets at Milton Baptist Church on Thursdays, and is open to boys aged five to 19.
