The 1910s - The Turmoil of War
The Boys Brigade Company in 1913 outside Anglo Scotian Mills. Membership had grown to 250 offering a wide range of activities for boys.
Life in Beeston – and around the world – changed forever shortly after Britain went to war with Germany.
The Old Boys were prominent amongst those who volunteered to serve their country. By the end of the War over 270 young men with Beeston connections – including 42 Old Boys – had paid the ultimate sacrifice.
"I recently concluded my 2 year tenancy at a property managed by CP Walker and I can say that my experience with CP Walker has been a very positive one. The staff members that I dealt with have been very responsive and ensured that my requests for repairs were attended to very quickly. Even towards the end of my tenancy, I was kept notified of viewings well in advance. They have been very professional from the signing of the contract up until the handing over of the keys and I am delighted to have enjoyed a hassle free tenancy in one of their properties.
