100 Years of Kinross Boys' Brigade

2020 is a special celebration, with the Kinross BB Company celebrating 100 years of service within the local community. The Company was founded in 1892 but closed doors in 1912. Local teacher Roddy Beaton restarted the Company in 1940 with the help of Shettleston boys who had been evacuated to Kinross for the war years.

New badges have been introduced to coincide with new programme materials, which makes it even more exciting for the membership. January saw the Battalion mini-volleyball tournament taking place as well as preparations for forthcoming competitions in drill, scripture search, chess and five-a-side football. Juniors are preparing for their festival of activities: figure marching and singing as well as potted sports. Company section members are taking part in the annual international team games competition which features physical, logic puzzles, general knowledge, Bible knowledge and world issues.

Our annual fundraising coffee morning takes place on Saturday 29 February at the Church Centre, 10am till 12 noon. People will have the opportunity of making suggestions as to how the Company should celebrate 100 years of the BB in Kinross-shire.

The annual display and presentation of awards takes place in the Church Centre at 7pm on Friday 15 May.

The annual summer camp will be in Orkney this summer over the second week of July with the hope of seeing the Northern Lights.
