Bri­gade back on pa­rade

Ayrshire Post - - PRESTWICK NEWS - 1st Prest­wick

The An­nual Dis­play of the 1st Prest­wick Boys’ Bri­gade was well at­tended by par­ents, friends and Church fam­ily, writes Cap­tain Sam Gil­mour.

Our In­spect­ing Of­fi­cer was Alan Hunter, BB Train­ing and De­vel­op­ment Of­fi­cer for Scot­land.

Dur­ing the first half of the evening, the In­spec­tion took place with Mr Hunter tak­ing time to speak to the boys and of­fi­cers. The boys then took part in March­ing, Games, P. T. and var­i­ous other ac­tiv­i­ties, all of which they per­formed with great en­thu­si­asm. The sec­ond half of the evening was ded­i­cated to the pre­sen­ta­tion of Awards, Badges, Prizes and Cer­tifi­cates. These awards to­gether with the pre­sen­ta­tion of the Va­lerie Greig Tro­phy and Steven Muir Award were pre­sented by Mr Hunter.

In his clos­ing re­marks Mr Hunter praised the boys for their hard work and en­thu­si­asm which he said had showed in all the events through­out the evening. He also added that the Boys’ Bri­gade rep­re­sented Fun, Faith and Friend­ship which he was sure would con­tinue into next ses­sion. He also paid a fit­ting trib­ute to the of­fi­cers. Our thanks to all who helped make our evening such a suc­cess.

The Ju­nior Sec­tion camp was in Mof­fat and the boys en­joyed a var­ied pro­gramme of events in­clud­ing walk­ing in the coun­try­side, sports, foot­ball, rounders and trips to the sweet shop, toy shop and boat­ing lake, all of which proved very pop­u­lar. We were very for­tu­nate this year in that our bid for £ 750 fund­ing to­wards trans­port and ac­com­mo­da­tion costs from Prest­wick Lo­cal­ity De­cides was suc­cess­ful.

The Com­pany Sec­tion camp was on Cum­brae with an ex­cit­ing and var­ied pro­gramme in­clud­ing cy­cling, wa­ter sports, foot­ball and much more.
