"We just think it's fantastic that we have won our battle, they were trying to force us out with no process and only three weeks' notice, the girls were really upset.
"It has been tough on them, a couple of girls have been fundraising hard for a trip to Ghana and would have had to register with another group if we had been shut down.
"New members have been without a proper uniform for weeks because I've had to honestly tell them that they may have to join another group soon.
"I am so pleased to have pushed and made a fuss over this, I was not going to let them close us down quietly."
