The Company Section

Here at the 1st Redditch Company our ‘Company’ & ‘Senior’ Sections meet together on a Friday evening from 7:45 pm till 10:00 pm. We start the evening by falling in with an inspection of the boys’ uniform. We then have a varied programme of badge work, drill and physical activities.

Badge Work
We have recently changed our programme to encompass the new Company Section (11–14yrs) ‘Discover’ programme. This has proved to be interesting and exciting with a whole new range of activities for the lads to get their teeth into; from Cooking to Pod Casting.

In September 2008 we will be starting the new ‘Challenge Plus’ programme for the ‘Seniors’ (14–19yrs), this will be on similar format to the ‘Discover’ programme, so we are all looking forward to its’ release.

The Members
We currently have 14 boys in the ‘Company’ & ‘Senior’ Sections, and 5 of them are NCOs (None Commissioned Officers) one Sergeant, two Corporals and two Lance Corporals. Once a boy reaches 14 years old they can be considered for promotion to one of the NCO ranks, but they also have to prove their commitment and enthusiasm to the Company.

Extra Activies
We have throughout the year several competitions within the Worcestershire Battalion including Five-A-Side football, Darts, PE Competition, General Knowledge Quiz and more. We also have the opportunity to take part in National competitions and endurance challenges e.g. the Cleveland Hike (a two-day hike across the north Yorkshire Moors). If you check out some of our awards pages you will see that at 1st Redditch we have a great tradition of being very successful within competitions especially Drill.

We also have at least two weekends away, usually an indoor weekend in October (see here for the latest trip) and an under canvas camp in the June (this year will be 6th–8th June will be at Biblins Youth Camp).

We also have regular trips to play ‘Quasar’, Ten Pin Bowling, together with swimming trips or Ice Skating.

What do our members have to say?

We thought who better to tell you what the lads think than themselves so here's some of thier opinions.

Camping - Isle of Wight 2006 - when we went to Black Gang Chine theme park on my birthday was excellent. We also went to Bilberry Hill where we learnt about Science

Drew (2nd Year Company Section)

One of the best things at Boys' Brigade I have done was going away to Symonds Yatch for the weekend. We went swimming, caving and more! Another favourite part of BB is going to Quasar. Sam (3rd Year Company Section)

When I started Boys' Brigade it was just for one night but I enjoyed it so much I wanted to go again so I joined. It was fun and enjoyable and I made many friends througout the year. I love BB so much I couldn't do anything better on a Friday. Carl (3rd Year Company Section)

All of the Camps and weekends away have been really enjoyable for me and I was in my first talent show when I went to the Isle of Wight - 2006. Alex (1st Year Company Section)
