AN ENROLMENT Service for the 7th Arbroath Company, Boys’ Brigade, was held in St Andrew’s Church on Thursday evening.

During the short service, conducted by the Rev. Dr W. Martin Fair, the boys were enrolled into the company. Two company boys, Struan Smith and Cameron Spink, received their President’s Badge and will now be working towards their Queen’s Badge, the Brigade’s highest honour.

Earlier in the week at the Church’s Kirk Session meeting, they appointed a new Captain to the 7th Arbroath BB, Mrs Wilma H. Ewart. Her position was formally announced at the rededication service. She succeeds Mr Earl J. Matthew MBE who retired from that position at the conclusion of the 50th birthday celebrations of the company in May.
