THE BOYS' BRIGADE

1st Larbert Company

Captain: Owen Fleming

The Anchor Boys (Church Hall - Friday, 6:30pm)

The Anchor Boys is for P2 and P3 and have lots of fun doing different activities which include making things, crafts, music, games, sports, stories, going on visits, making friends, and working towards their badges.

Junior Section (Church Hall - Friday, 6:30pm)

Junior Section is for P3 to P6. Juniors have fun! Their meetings are crammed full of challenges, games and activities, usually ones that they themselves have suggested. There are hundreds of activities catering for just about every possible interest. At the same time we try to encourage them to explore other new interests. There is loads of variety and little chance of becoming bored!

The award programme is specifically designed to encourage boys to look beyond themselves. Many are interested in one type of activity - perhaps sports, or natural history. Our special programme provides for such interests and at the same time gently urges them to try others of a different type. This provides a balanced all round programme - which includes spiritual and social input, as well as physical and adventure activities.
