The Boys Brigade meets weekly on a Friday evening using the church hall and BB Hut. The BB is open to all boys in the community and girls can join too. It is one of the few uniformed organisations in the town and serves as a form of outreach. The BB holds regular church services throughout the year and camping plays a major part of their pursuits. No electricity, no water - just fun for all.
