We are looking forward to welcoming you to two big BB events during the month of March.

First, our Coffee Morning takes place on Saturday 8th March from 10am until 12 noon at the Cathedral Hall. Entry is £1.50 per adult or £1 per child, which includes tea, coffee, scones and pancakes. There will be a cake and candy stall and tombola, along with lots of competitions and, of course, the ever-popular chocolate fountain!

As it’s Fairtrade Fortnight, some of the boys will be running a Fairtrade awareness stall, too.

Donations of home baking and items for the bottle stall will be gratefully received and these can be dropped off at the Cathedral Hall on the evening of 7th March between 7pm and 10pm.

Later in the month, we invite you to our 3rd Annual Concert on Sunday 23rd March at 7pm in the Victoria Hall. As well as a wide and varied repertoire from our ever-expanding BB Band, there will be solo and small-group musical performances as well as magic, drama, circus acts and lots more! Something for everyone.

The concert is in aid of The Galgael Trust and they will have a stall at the concert offering for sale some of their handmade wood crafts and kitchen apparatus. Tickets are £5 (adults) and £3 (children) and are available by e-mailing info@dunblanebb.org.uk or you can buy online at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/3rd-annual-boys-brigade-concert-tickets-10595905639

Enrolment for all sections for the 2013/14 session will take place on Friday 23rd August in Dunblane Cathedral Hall from 6pm-8pm. We look forward to welcoming new members for the coming year in all sections. Please note that this evening is simply a drop-in. We encourage parents/carers to bring along any brand new boys to say hello but it is primarily for us to collect paperwork, payments, offer uniform items for sale, and a chance for you to ask any questions. Formal meetings for the different sections begin on the following dates…

Anchor Boys (P1-P3*): Wednesday 4th September, 6.05-7.10pm

Junior Section (P4-P6): Friday 30th August, 6.10-7.45pm

Company Section (P7-S3) and Seniors (S4-S6): Friday 30th August 7.45-10.00pm^ and Sunday 1st September 7.30-9.00pm

Our second Coffee Morning of this session was equally as successful as the first with £1,020 raised for company funds. The Cathedral Hall was stowed out the door as dozens of boys’ families, friends, supporters and, of course, members of the public came along to support the event. The chocolate fountain was back, to everyone’s delight, and, unbelievably, the correct guesser of the sweets in the jar was Alistair Williams again! Great work, young man!

The officers and boys would like to thank everyone who baked or bought supplies, everyone who helped serving, cleaning up, washing dishes or making tea/coffee throughout the morning and, of course, everyone who came along and contributed so generously to help fund our activities for almost 180 boys every week.

Following on from a highly successful last-minute appeal at Christmas in 2011, 25th Stirling (Dunblane) Boys’ Brigade is organising another major collection for Startup Stirling’s Crisis Food Bank and in conjunction with Good Green Fun.

The BB is appealing to the local community around Dunblane, Bridge of Allan and Stirling to support by donating non-perishable foodstuffs, Christmas food, toiletries, nearly-new toys, household supplies and children’s clothes.

The collection will be led by boys and leaders from the Boys’ Brigade and takes place in St. Blane’s Church Hall, High Street, Dunblane on Friday, December 21 from 4-7pm.

All items will help local families who need support in these challenging times and will be distributed in time to make a difference to people’s Christmases.

Here’s a list of what we CAN accept:

Tinned or dried food; non-perishable food, in particular: tea, coffee, tinned meat, tinned desserts, tinned fruit, jam, marmalade, diluting juice, cereals, breakfast bars, pasta, rice, soup, beans etc. UHT milk and long-life fruit juices. Cleaning materials and equipment (new), toiletries, nappies, household supplies. Disused crockery, cutlery and mugs. Wrapped Christmas presents for children (please label suitability). You can also make a cash donation on the day.

‘Good Green Fun’, another local charity, will also be grateful for donations of children’s clothes, nearly-new toys, books etc.

Here’s what, respectfully, we CANNOT accept (e.g. please don’t bring these):

Adult clothes, blankets/duvets/cushions, home baking, cuddly toys, electrical equipment, alcohol.

For more information about Start-Up Stirling, please see their website at www.startupstirling.org.uk. To contact the BB in Dunblane about this collection, please use the ‘contact us’ link at the top of this page or call 01786 823192 or 07767 691812.

Friday 24th August 6.00-8.00pm, Cathedral Hall (drop in at any time)

Come along to the Cathedral Hall to sign your son up for Boys’ Brigade this session or to find out more about what we do. Leaders will be there to talk with you and explain how BB works, so drop in any time between 6pm and 8pm. Enrolment forms can be downloaded from the relevant section age group page on this website. Contact us via the site if you’d like more information in advance.
We are looking for adult volunteers, too, so if you share the Christian commitment of the Boys’ Brigade and would like to get involved, this is also a chance to come and say hello and find out what the role involves.

This summer we headed to the ‘Theatre of Dreams’ – Old Trafford – and the Imperial War Museum North in Manchester.
