session of the 3rd Inverness Boys Brigade came to an end on Friday 17th
May with our Annual Display and Parent’s Night.
This year our Chief Guest was Inspector David Ogilvie from Police
Scotland; David told some interesting stories in his report as well as
giving some very positive comments on the attitude and behaviour of all
53 Boys were in attendance at the display and it was great to see more
than 100 parents, grandparents and friends packed into the hall.
Our theme this year was dance and all sections took part in their own
items based around the theme, and at one point both Peter Donald and
David Ogilvie were on the floor strutting their stuff!
Once again the highlight of the evening was the presentation of the
Queen’s Badge to Ross Baxter. Ross only joined the 3rd a couple of
years ago but he has worked tirelessly in that time and was rewarded
with the Queen’s badge – he is a credit to his family, the Company and
to Church and I would like to take this opportunity to wish them all
the very best for the future.
President’s Badges were also presented to Dominic Syred and Craig Fraser.
The Boys have also taken part in the Battalion Golf and Sports
competitions; Ross Baxter won the U-19 golf and the Junior Section Boys
won their section of the sports – well done to you all.
The staff are all off for all well earned rest but we’ll be back raring to go again in August / September!!

doing some voluntary work – some moved gravel from the side of the
Church to the areas at the front, while others assisted at a water
station at the Inverness Half Marathon.
Boys have also taken part in the Battalion swimming gala, badminton and
table tennis competitions; the most notable successes were in the table
tennis with Craig Fraser finishing runner-up in the Under-15 and Ross
Baxter winning the Under-19 age groups.
Five of our senior boys
also formed the Colour Party at the Annual Battalion Parade to Dalneigh
Church. It was a really cold day and the Boys did the Company and the

As the boys took part in the Highland Battalion fund raising sponsored
walk/run, Captain Gary McAra decided to enter a team of the officers
into the Heartbeat Challenge to help raise funds for the Company and
the Cardiology Unit at Raigmore Hospital. Well
Heartbeat Challenge involves running / walking 12 miles from Nairnshire
to Moy Estate, crossing Saddle Hill and Pulpit Hill with a 10 mile
