The company section is for boys’ aged 11-15 and they meet on a Monday night from 19:30 until 21:10.
In company section the boys’ work towards badges that are awarded on Open Night. In the fourth and final year boys can work towards the Presidents Badge which is the second highest award in BB. We work on Drill practice for competitions involving knock out drill & the boys sometimes leading drill. We make time to play games each night, the popular game at the moment is volleyball. While we have a laugh playing the games they all aim to teach teamwork.
We have two trips away each year we go to London in March & visit various tourist attractions there including anything from going up St. Pauls Cathedral to the zoo. In the summer holidays we have the annual camp in which we go away with boys & leaders from other companies. The camps are in differing parts of the country, for example this year we are on camp at Ringwood in the New Forest. While on camp we visit the beach have a camp challenge & visit any attractions in the local area.
The officer in charge of company is Matt Ashby with support from Jordan Bell, Paul Ellis and Lynn Davies.
