Statement regarding recent press coverage

Dear Parent or Carer,

This is a joint communication from the Captain of 25th Stirling (Dunblane) Boys’ Brigade and the Ministers of St Blane’s Church and Dunblane Cathedral.

Some of you may be aware of press reports concerning a leader at 25th Stirling BB. The leader concerned has been asked to step back from his role, which he has agreed to.

We can reassure parents and young people that we take these things very seriously and we are committed to maintaining the highest standards from our volunteers. We would also like to thank you for your continued support for our BB Company as we resolve this.

Please feel free to talk to any of us should you have any additional concerns.

Paul Christmas. Captain – 25th Stirling (Dunblane) Boys’ Brigade
Rev. Colin Renwick. Minister, Dunblane Cathedral
Rev. Gary Caldwell. Minister, St Blane’s Church, Dunblane

115th Anniversary Old Boys and Friends Dinner

2015 sees 25th Stirling (Dunblane) Boys’ Brigade celebrate 115 years since the founding of the company – in its original 1st Dunblane form – back in 1900. To mark the occasion, a number of events are being held on the weekend of 2nd-4th October including a reunion dinner to which all former members and officers of the company are invited.

The dinner will be held in the Victoria Hall, Dunblane at 7.30pm. Tickets are £25 per person and include a three-course meal. A cash bar will be available on the night. All proceeds from the evening will go to Dunblane BB funds to help support the programme for its current 200 boys and officers.

Former captains and officers from yesteryear have been lined up to tell some stories of BB years gone by and we invite you to bring along any photographs, uniform, badges or other BB paraphernalia to share. Entertainment will be provided at the beginning of the night by the Boys’ Brigade band.

To reserve a ticket, please e-mail info@dunblanebb.org.uk or call 01786 821387. Alternatively, you can purchase online straight away at Eventbrite (no additional fee).

You can also check the Facebook event page to see who else is planning to come.
