BB hoping for more success
Group look forward to new session
The 195 Boy’s Brigade company has started their new session and will be hoping for similar success to what they achieved last year.
Based in Rutherglen West and Wardlawhill’s church hall on Hamilton Road, the company enjoyed a fantastic 2016/17.
Three of the older boys, Lewis Gemmell, Alexander Fulton and Keir Wilson Sim, were presented with their Queen’s Badges, the highest award that can be achieved in the Boys’ Brigade.
They then went on to a parade to Glasgow Cathedral to meet up with all the boys in Glasgow receiving his award.
The trio also represented the BB at the Royal Guard of Honour for the opening of the Church of Scotland’s General Assembly.
In sport, the junior section football team were runners-up in the district league and five-a-side competitions but struck gold with the Summer Cup.
The boys also came away with a handful of medals competing in the district athletics at the Emirates Arena.
At the end of the year, the boys came together for the annual display and presentation of awards.
A packed hall of parents and friends were entertained with games, singing, acting and other activities and Mrs Lisa Quinn, former head teacher at Calderwood Primary School, presented the awards. The following day the Anchor Boys celebrated its 50th birthday with a Lego Party.
During the summer, the company section and older junior section boys pitched their tents in Port Bannatyne, Isle of Bute, for the weekend camp where they were kept busy with a weekend of activities.
The company is looking for new members. Over the session a full range of activities takes place, including games, crafts, football training, basketball, table-tennis, badminton, volleyball, football, vaulting, swimming and trampolining.
The new session is now underway. The Anchor Boys, for boys in P1 to P3, meet on Mondays. The junior section, for boys in P4 to P6, is on Thursdays and the company section, for boys in P7 to S6, meet on Fridays.
