Boys’ Brigade launch online programme of activities
Following Government advice issued last month on social distancing, all face to face Boys’ Brigade activities and events were suspended across Scotland.
Local Boys’ Brigade groups like 1st Kinross Boys’ Brigade & Girls’ Association however, have been determined that their members can still take part in the Boys’ Brigade programme as much as possible, helping to provide much needed fun and continuity for children and their families in these challenging times.
David Munro, captain of 1st Kinross commented: “In these difficult days for everyone we are still engaging with our members through social media and I have received positive feedback from our youngsters about the on-line BB resources produced by Brigade HQ for our Anchor Section, Junior Section and Company Section.
“Although we have missed out participating in our normal and Perth Battalion activities, we are looking forward to celebrating 100 years of BB in Kinross when our formal session is due to resume in September. Former members are invited to recall memories from their times in the Company and forward them to the Kinross company captain.”
The Boys’ Brigade is making the new #BBatHome programme available across all its age groups and to non-members as well as existing members.
Weekly programmes are being created for the following age groups: anchors (5-8 years), juniors (8–11 years) and company/seniors (11+). The new resources are being published every Friday on The Boys’ Brigade’s website and via an email alert that parents can sign up for.
