Four captains from Falkirk & District Battalion joined 25 others at Carronvale House to discuss the role they play, in their own companies and in their sponsoring churches.

The course was led by the Brigade secretary and the director for Scotland who highlighted the relatively large number of companies operating without an official captain; some within our own battalion. The question is why is this the case?

The course focused on captains and the resources available to them to prepare for the role, bearing in mind individual strengths and weaknesses. It was a full and rewarding day, with the guidance and fellowship leaving them re-energised and full of ideas to drive their companies forward.

In Glasgow on November 15, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland accepted a cheque for £12,000 from the 2013 BB World Mission Fund Appeal. It will be used for the ‘Play Pumps’ project in Malawi. The 2014 project is called ‘Czech it Out’ and information can be found on the WMF website.

Congratulations to David Seaton, from 3rd Falkirk (People’s Church) on the birth of his second child Andrew, brother for Amy, on December 4. Mum Lynne and baby are doing well.

The company’s Christmas Hamper project raised £650.

The company’s next game in the national ‘fives’ will be at East Kilbride and their next opponents in the table-tennis competition are from 7th Edinburgh.

Tickets for the Carronvale Burns Supper are available at £15 from Irene at HQ. The event, which sells out quickly, will be on Monday, January 20, at 7.30 p.m.
