At the 1st Cumbernauld BB Company’s annual display on Thursday 15th May four young men were presented with their President’s Badges and three with their Queen’s Badges – the highest award in the Boys’ Brigade. President’s Badges were awarded to Euan McLeod, Russell O’Brien, Kade Sommerville and Andrew Watson, while our new Queen’s Men are Greig Bradley, Ryan Conway and Andrew Irvine. Every one of these young men are a credit to our Company, their families and themselves. Well done and congratulations from all at Cumbernauld Old.
These posters were part of a set – others went to local nursing homes, hospitals, etc. – and had the theme of Christmas carols. Here we have Hark The Herald Angels Sing and Away In A Manger.
They really provided a wonderful backdrop to our our services over the Christmas period and we’d like to congratulate and thank the young people of Eastfield Primary for all their hard work and talent.
During this service we invite people to come forward and take two coloured ribbons for each person they wish to remember; one to tie on the Rainbow Tree and one to take away with them and keep, or use in a way that helps them remember.
There are two Rainbow Trees, one which will go into the Parish Church once it has re-opened for worship and one which is on display at our worship services in the Forge Community Centre at Balloch.
Both trees will remain until Easter 2014 and we invite anyone visiting our church or attending our services to tie a ribbon in memory of a loved one. At Easter the ribbons are removed from the tree and used to enhance our worship – no ribbon is ever discarded or reused.
The pictures show the Rainbow Trees from our service on 15 December 2103.
