Thank you to all the officers for all their help and support this year.
A special thanks to Colin Meek for all the help and work he has done for the company for the past 30 odd years we wish him well in the future.
The Company Section has three to four boys attending each week. Due to the low numbers we have been limited in the number of Battalion and National competitions that we can enter. However, we have continued with our badgework which has included financial planning, mock job interviews, drill, CPR, and various other topics. We have one boy working towards his Presidents Badge and another towards his Queen’s Badge. We had a Christmas outing to Airspace in East Kilbride, which the boys thoroughly enjoyed. We are now thinking about this year’s Parents Night.
Thanks to the boys for attending and parents for their support. Thanks also to our officers John Fenney, Sharon Fenney and Grant Kirkwood. Special thanks to Joanne Rankine who has been assisting our Queen’s Badge boy.
