New Term Information

Posted: 2019-09-01 by Captain

A letter from our captain regarding the new term.

I hope you have all had the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing summer break, whether at home or somewhere significantly drier. Our thoughts are turning towards starting back at Boys' Brigade in a couple of weeks' time, we are looking forward to welcoming all the boys back for the new session starting on Monday 9th September.

Apologies for the length of this email, I am trying to reduce the amount of letters we print and speed up the communication to you. We will continue to make as much use of the Parent Portal for activities, events and information updates for your son's details. If you are able to use this facility, there is no need to complete and return the Annual Information Form. The portal system automatically requests you to check and update information every 6 months to assist with this, please ensure we have the correct information for your son. Please let me know if you would prefer a physical letter.

Subscriptions will remain unchanged for this year, set at £18 per term again. These goes towards our activities and insurances that are paid annually to BB UK for our membership. I hope that you consider this good value for money. We are able to keep the costs lower by having fundraising events, please encourage the boys to support these with their attendance. If you prefer to pay using bank transfer, please ask us for bank details.

I have included a company diary for this session which has all the planned activities and events outside of Mondays for the Battalion and wider BB, this is also updated on our website. As you can see we have a number of activities and events coming up quickly this term. I would really appreciate your support with our 60th Anniversary Service on the 13th October and our fundraising Bag Pack on 19th October. If you know of any ex-members, please invite them along to our anniversary service, we would love for them to join us too.

Please ensure your son has correct uniform for each week and any events. All sections consist of their BB Polo, BB sweatshirt along with dark trousers and black shoes. Company boys have the addition of a belt and should bring a change of shoes and shorts or jogging bottoms for games. I have attached a uniform order form for any new items due to summer growth spurts. We do have a small selection of second hand uniform items that are available at a reduced price, please let me know if you would like to take a look at these.

We are always on the look out to add new and interesting activities to our programme. If you have any hobbies or interests that you could share or would consider volunteering to help us at BB please let me know and we can discuss further.

I hope that this year will be as enjoyable as last year and we continue to grow the activities we offer and as always if you have any questions, queries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.
