1st Haslington started in 1970 with the formation of the Company section, the Junior Section followed a year later in 1971. 1st Haslington was originally part of the Warrington Battalion, but when more Boys' Brigades started up in nearby areas the East Cheshire Battalion was set up. With 24 members in our Company, it grew to become a big success.
The 1st Haslington Boys Brigade has had five captains - Ray Smith, Reg Shore, John Cain, Rob Welch and John Quigley (our current captain). In the 1970's, 1st Haslington had a brass band which was the BB National champions for two years. We also had a quiz team which reached the national finals twice and in the 1980's we were the North West District football champions.
