SESSION 2021/22: Update - 03/01/22

A happy new year to all members and their families - here's hoping 2022, sees a continued journey back to a more normal BB experience.

That journey, unfortnately, already has some bumps in the road, the first being the omicron variant of coronavirus.  

Scheduled to restart BB activities on Friday 7 January, in light of the continuing spread of coronavirus, we have decided to delay that restart until the week commencing 10 January, commencing with online/virtual Zoom meetings, details of which will be issued to parents in advance of the Monday and Friday meetings.   

The health of members, volunteers (and their families) is paramount in this decision, and the need to find a balance between that and our responsibility in helping reduce the spread of the virus in the local community. 

Online/virtual meetings will take place for as short a period as possible, until we are satisfied that the virus spread is declining. 

Before you know it, we'll be back to face-to-face meetings at the South Halls.  

Stay safe.

Congratulations to  Lewis, Clarke, Anna and Sophie who recently had their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh awards approved by BBHQ. 

Having started the award in January 2020, their participation was impacted and completion delayed, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.  The restrictions the pandemic has brought since 2020 impacted all award activities - physical, skill, volunteering and expedition. 

However, credit where credit is due, our 'fab four'  remained focused, adjusted their activities where necessary (accounting for restrictions), to ensure they remained achievable and continued to meet the awards aims & requirements. 

On top of all that, some expedition theory work was necessary (it had been over a year since they'd picked up a map/compass!), a practice day walk at Carron Valley, route card preparation and finally, the assessed expedition in October 2021, during which the group had to contend with an overnight yellow weather warning.    

Certificates and badges will all be available shortly and presentation of these will take place soon to recognise the achievments.  Now on to Silver!
