The 7th Wishaw Annual Display and Presentation of awards will take place this Friday, 12th May at Wishaw Academy School for a 7:00 start. Doors will open from 6:45.
Can we ask senior boys, and those boys taking part in the drill team to be there for 5:45 to allow setup and practice. All other boys should be there for 6:30.
We would ask all boys to be in attendance with full uniform. If you have any problems please let us know.
The Company Thanksgiving service will take place this coming Sunday, 14th May, at the church. All boys should meet for 9:50 at the church. The boys will be finished by approximately 11:15
Again, could we ask all boys to be in attendance in full uniform.
Friday 19th May and beyond
We will continue to meet for the next few weeks at the church in preparation for camp. No uniform will be required and activities will be focussed around the outdoors.
Can we ask that camp payments are made by next Friday 19th.
We will take a final decision on the Kilbryde Hike next Friday depending on numbers (mainly officer numbers are the issue this year).
We had 4 boys attend the swimming practice and they have secured their place in the team but there were many more boys put their hands up and said they would like to take part in the competition.
We have 12 places available (2 * breast stroke and 2 * free-style ) in each year.
There is no cost for the event (for boys or spectators) although there is normally a programme sold on entry for a nominal fee to raise battalion funds.
Boys can wear a t-shirt and towel over their swimming kit to keep warm between races.
Lockers are £1 (refundable) – please share where possible.
The competition (for Junior Section age) is expected to finish no later than 8pm.
For events with a large number of entrants there will be two or more heats.
For events with a small number of entrants there may be no heats (straight to final)
The spectator area does get VERY hot.
PLEASE LET MR BARBOUR KNOWIF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR BOY TO PARTICIPATE.
Boys MUST be able to swim ONE BREADTH of the swimming pool unaided.
Junior section races are held in the shallow end.
All boys who intimated they would like to swim in the gala should be at Wishaw Sports Centre for 7.00 for registration.
Any boy who wasn’t there on Friday night can still attend and can register with the rest. The gala should last no longer than 2 hours.
It is intended that the Anchor Boys are going to the Motherwell Civic Centre on Friday 2 December to see Peter Pan.
Further details will be given out tomorrow night.
Sorry for the late post.
Just a reminder that the Company Section are off tonight for the September Weekend but are on as normal next week (30th) in full uniform.
We are trying to add as much history of the Company to the website as possible. If you have any photos or info you would like anything added to the site please email firstname.lastname@example.org giving dates / locations / etc
