The Magnificent 7th Company has been suspended
Boys' Brigade Company
At a meeting held in late August 2021, it was agreed unanimously that, after receiving very few offers
of help from all the sources contacted, the
7th Edinburgh Boys' Brigade Company
is no longer able to continue.
It has therefore been decided that the 'Magnificent 7th'
will have to be suspended, primarily due to a lack of leaders. However, it is planned that this will be carried out in such a way that we will have the option of restarting, if new leaders emerge in the future.
The Battalion representative made generous comments about the past successes of the 7th BBs and thanks and appreciation were expressed to every leader, past and present, for their work over many years. It is hoped that any of the boys wishing to continue, will be able to join another local company. Contact details will be provided
for them and also for any badge work that
needs to be completed.
It was also agreed that a service of celebration, marking the achievements of the 7th Edinburgh Boys’ Brigade, should be held at Colinton Parish Church at a future date when it is hoped that Covid-19 restrictions will have
eased further. This will be agreed with the
Minister in due course.
