54th Sheffield – the oldest BB company in Sheffield
The 54th Sheffield Company was founded at Firth Park Methodist Church in 1918. It was originally a Boys Life Brigade company, but became part of the Boys’ Brigade in 1925, when the BB and BLB merged to form one organisation. This makes the 54th the oldest surviving company in Sheffield.
We are part of the Sheffield and District Battalion, which was established in 1889.
The Boys’ Brigade is the oldest uniformed youth organisation in the world and has over 500,000 members world wide.
The 54th now
Lead by our Company Captain, Paul Sheard, the boys of the 54th can take part in a wide range of activities, from weekly sports and games to special nights of laser questing, climbing, walking, self defence classes, and much more.
Girls are also welcome to join the Brigade at Firth Park. Parents are asked to pay subs of one pound per child, in order to fund their activities.
