Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations -

A Cam­bus­lang Boy’s Brigade com­pany are ap­peal­ing for new mem­bers.

The 217th Gil­bert­field have seen a dra­matic drop in mem­ber­ship of their ju­nior sec­tion over the past few years.

They are also look­ing for adult vol­un­teers to help out.

The com­pany started as the 217 Glas­gow in Oc­to­ber 1924 and have been based at Flem­ing­ton Hall­side since.

Ju­nior sec­tion of­fi­cer Glenn Jamieson said: “We are a Chris­tian or­gan­i­sa­tion but we take boys from all back­grounds.

“Our nights mainly con­sist of games and meet­ing peo­ple.

“We have the se­ri­ous stuff like march­ing, which teaches dis­ci­pline, but it’s mainly sports and games.”

The 217th An­chor Boys start on Mon­day, Septem­ber 5 from 6.15-7.15pm for boys aged five to pri­mary three.

Ju­nior sec­tion starts on Tues­day, Septem­ber 6, 7.309pm or boys pri­mary four to six.

And the com­pany sec­tion meets on Fri­days from Septem­ber 8, 7.15- 10pm for boys in pri­mary seven and up.

Of­fi­cers can be con­tacted by email on gilbert­field217@ gmail. com, on Face­book and also at the church on meet­ing nights.
