This year we welcomed all Boys back to an action packed program that will be fun to take part in. It's for all Boys aged from 11 to 15 in Company Section and 15 and over in Seniors. See us on Facebook at sure steadfast but only if we know you as we don't let everyone on to our pages!

There will be no personal or calendar references on this page.  If you register on this web site you will be given a password to enter a closed area for that purpose.

The object of the Boys' Brigade was set by Sir William Smith, the founder, in 1883:-

"The advancement of Christ's Kingdom among Boys and the promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness."

It's as relevant today as it was then and a standard by which we encourage all Boys to achieve.

Subscriptions

 

As you might expect as a charity we cannot exist without support.  Parents are asked to contribute by donating £50 for Anchor Boys, £50 for Junior Section , £60 for Company and Senior Section with reduced rates for more than one brother in the Company.

This amount is requested early in the session as in the main part it is used to pay the BB National District Capitation fees.  

We provide an annual set of accounts and it can be seen over the last few years that despite prudent spending the subscriptions are not enough and do not provide extra for outings etc.

View our Annual accounts Here

Parental assistance with transport etc is greatly apprecitated.   We may have to seek further support financially for any outings planned outwith the Halls e.g. swimming, sports etc.

   
 

HAVE YOU GOT WHAT IT TAKES TO HELP AT THE COMPANY AND SENIOR SECTION

 

As always we are on the lookout for full and part time leaders to augment our great team of leaders.   Our leaders do a great job and if you have been a member of the BB in the past or any other youth organisations you will no doubt recall the good experience that you had.   No doubt your time there helped shape your life in some way.

When Sir William Smith founded the BB in 1883 he too had to ask for volunteers.   If those people had not felt the call to help none of the success of the BB worldwide and locally would have happened.   Indeed if Lord Baden Powell had not helped at the BB he may never have felt like forming the Scouts!!

This is a call to YOU and if  you feel challenged and would like to assist in any small way the 86th BB would be delighted to hear from you.

Remember you do not need any special training nor do you require to be specially skilled we just need your time and personality.

If you feel you could be tempted to come and help either for a number of weeks or longer please email us at bb-at-orchardhill.org.uk. (substitute -at- with@ This is to prevent spam) or simply come along to the Company and Senior Section one night to see for yourself how you could help.
