COVID19 - BBUK Update - 13/5/20

Following continuing Government guidance regarding the coronavirus pandemic, BBUK has advised that all face-to-face meetings, activities and events will remain suspended until at least 31 August 2020.

As a consequence this has caused the cancellation of our own Junior & Company Section Camps. In addition our fundraising Plant Sale on 30 May 2020 has also been cancelled.

We continue to encourage and make use of the #BBatHOME resources and continue with virtual meetings and other ways of maintaining a sense of community during these challenging times. 

Stay safe and healthy.



A recent addition to our website is our new Webshop.

Although still in its infancy, there are currently two items for sale -  our 50th Anniversary Commemorative Badge and 50th Anniversary Eco-Mug.  More items are coming and will be added in due course. And we'll look to develop further once the Company is back up and running - ordering uniform, badges, etc. 

Sale proceeds go directly to the 212th, which due to current circumstances, will help in a small part raise funds that would have normally been received from fundraising events cancelled due to the COVID19 health crisis.

Anchor Boys Summer Trip

Saturday 1 May was supposed to be the Anchor Boys Summer Trip to Heads of Ayr Farm Park. We were just about to issue details for it when the coronavirus lockdown kicked in. And by the looks of it we'd have been fortunate with the weather again.

Here's a little memories-past montage of Anchor Boys Trips - lots of smiling faces and fun and hopefully an activity that will be back on the calendar for 2021.

Toilet Roll Challenge

A cross-sectional challenge set by Captain Ritchie -  a bit of fun during lockdown.

30 boys and leaders stepped up to the plate.  Well done everyone - great to see you're all keeping active.  

Check out the video below.

Lockdown Challenge 2 - 'Pass the Bru'

The second of our cross-sectional lockdown challenges - 'Pass the Bru'.  Well done to all the boys, from Anchors to Seniors to Chaplians, who participated. 

#BBatHome Activity Packs

New activitiy packs for all sections updated Friday weekly!

Junior Section Camp

Another event casualty of the current COVID19 lockdown restrictions - Junior Section Camp - which was scheduled to take place during the weekend of 15-17 May, returning to Whithaugh Park in the Scottish Borders.  Here's a memories video from our three year's of Junior Camp at Kincrai (2018 & 2019) and Whithaugh Park (2017). Hopefully  Junior Section Camp will return in 2021. Fingers crossed!
