Boys’ Brigade and Girlguiding Christmas Appeal 2021

We have been thinking about all the children and families in our area who are struggling and with Christmas fast approaching decided to offer our hand of friendship and organise our Christmas Appeal again.

Organisations will help to contribute in different ways i.e. donate one nights collections, decorate and fill boxes as part of badge work.  We are extending our appeal to parents and members of the congregation to take part and would be grateful if you could donate something from the list below.

We’re Back!

After nearly eighteen months of being unable to meet, we are pleased to announce that we are now able to resume face to face activities!

The Company Section will resume at 7:25pm on Wednesday 22nd September. All boys, regardless of age, attending Company Section must wear a properly fitted face covering.

The Junior Section will resume for boys in primaries 4,5 and 6 on Monday 20th September at 7.25pm

Anchor Boys’ will resume on Wednesday 22nd September at 6pm for boys in primary 3 who are already registered with us. After the October week holiday we will then open up to take in new members from primaries 1, 2 and 3.

In the meantime, any parent wishing further information should message the appropriate section via their Facebook page.

All of the leaders look forward to seeing everyone on again soon.

The 167 and Coronavirus

Almost four months have now passed since we have been able to meet, and we hope that during that time all of our boys and their families have managed to stay safe and well.

Unfortunately though it is unlikely that we will be able to begin meeting immediately as “normal” at the start of September, and that the coming session is likely to look a bit different from what we are all used to; it is our intention that all sections of the company will resume weekly activities again after the summer holidays are over. The staff of all three sections are now working on new ways of making this happen to ensure that once restrictions are lifted in full the company is still here for all of our members.

All of our current members will be notified nearer the time by post what the arrangements will be for us starting back. Also follow our Facebook page for any further updates!
