Boys’ Brigade Awards Presentation 2015

There was a Dedication service for the Boys and Girls Brigades on Sunday 25th October, 2015. During the service Adam Gibson was presented with the President’s Badge. For it he had to, in addition to normal badge work (30 activities in one year) attend a leadership course and complete 10 hours of service within the company. He also had to complete a Christian faith course. Having previously attended 1st Stevenston Company where he did most of the work to earn his badge, he has now started on his Queens badge working fully in 1st Saltcoats at St. Cuthbert’s.
