1st Weston BB Photo Gallery

Anchors 2017/18 starts with some craft (creative) activities.  Most weeks we have physical activity and craft of some description.  Here is a few shots of the creation of our ‘Bible Bugs’ before we ventured to the kitchen to make rocky road.

A few pictures from the Battalion Fun Day at Kilve Court in June 2016 when the lads did orienteering, high ropes, wall climbing, river walking, fantasy trail, grass sledging and archery.
We hope the event will be repeated in 2017!

WOW! What an effort  – over 70 (filled) shoeboxes were collected by Blythswood Care for the Christmas Appeal.  Grateful thanks to Rosie Pike for organising and encouraging this and to the friends and members of CPBC and Brigades who contributed so generously.

Paul has also gained his Presidents Award.

Presidents Award_Paul Jones_20160214

Paul has been in 1st Weston-s-Mare Company since joining the junior section at the age of 8 and throughout his service has shown progression and enthusiasm.  In our company section he has gained all awards at the highest level (a pre-requisite of the Presidents Award) and, since then over the last 18 months, has contributed towards the discipline and motivation of the senior sections.  He has shown long-term commitment and hard work on company evening and has been instrumental in re-launching our Senior Section.  Recently promoted to Staff Sergeant, Paul continues as a leading example for the lads.  Also as part of his work towards this award he represented us at the District Centenary and was a colour bearer.
Rosie Pike (Somerset Battalion President and West of England &C.I. District Secretary) presented his award at the company monthly parade service on 14 February 2016. Rosie, a former captain of this company, can remember him starting as a shy 8 year old who now demonstrates the confidence and stature of a senior member.

It is with great pleasure that we now support him through his work towards The Queens Badge.
