On Saturday afternoon of 7th March 2020 several members of the Company took part in a Treasure Hunt, starting from the BB Hut at the Old Parish Church and finishing at a camp location on the banks of the River Nairn near to Little Kildrummie Farm with the kind permission of Kilravock Estate to whom we are grateful.   At the finish a bar-b-que was held for all at which we also flew our new camp flag which has been donated by The Guild of Nairn Old Parish Church to whom we are also very grateful.   

(Photo attached showing the new Camp Flag flying below the Union Jack on our new flag pole).   Under the flag is Lt David Harris preparing for the hungry participants.

 

On Sunday 15 March 2020 the 1st Nairn hosted the annual Boys' Brigade, Highland Division Parade.   Due to the onset of the Coronavirus the numbers were well down, not helped by bad weather, however some 35 Children and Officers attended.   The initial parade from the Bus Station to the Church was abandoned, the colours were paraded into church by a Colour Party made up from our Company.   During the service Sgt Alasdair Beaton was presented with his President's Badge by Capt Gary McArra on behalf of the Battalion President.   Following on from the service a short march-past parade was conducted close to the church where Rev Alison Mehigan , Chaplain of the 1st Nairn Company took the salute.

It should now be noted that all BB activity has ceased in view of the current situation.   All members will be contacted in the near future with details of on-line links with the BBs and activities to help keep the members occupied and safe.   The date of the next meeting and any summer activities will be dependant on how the current situation develops, members will be updated as soon as any information in this regard is known.
