The BB, above all, seeks to make a positive contribution to the lives of young people. Our programmes are balanced to provide every child and young person opportunities to take part in a wide range of activities, learn new skills and develop existing skills. The BB is open to all children and young people aged from 5 to 18 of any faith and background.
The Boys’ Brigade is a Christian based organisation for boys in the P1 – S6 age bracket. In addition to our Christian faith teachings we also do drill, leadership, camping, expeditions, athletics, badminton, table tennis, football, vaulting, games, PT, safety, badge work, arts and crafts, board games and other interests.
The BB is divided into 3 section:
278 BB Company meet Kirsten Oswald MP
Kirsten Oswald, MP visited Netherlee Church and met the Officers and Boys of the 278 Glasgow BB Company. The Officers were presented with a certificate recording an Early Day Motion in the House of Commons sponsored by Ms Oswald. Early Day Motions are formal motions submitted for debate in the House of Commons. Ms Oswald explained that very few are actually debated but allow MPs to draw attention to an event or cause. The boys then enjoyed questioning Ms Oswald on a wide range of topics from her experiences in Westminster to how to become an MP. The Company that the role of youth was important Ms Oswald and were encouraged to engage with democracy.
