Banff and Buchan Member of Parliament Doctor Eilidh Whiteford has praised the youngsters at New Deer’s Boys’ Brigade.
The 1st New Deer Boys’ Brigade had made a presentation at their annual parents night on Friday, May 9, which Dr Whiteford had attended.
Dr Whiteford inspected the parade as guest of honour, before making individual presentations to individual prize-winners who have earned awards over the year.
Speaking after the event, Dr Whiteford said: “It was an absolute pleasure to meet with a group of diligent, disciplined youngsters and to learn about their activities over the course of the year.
“The 1st New Deer is a great example of the valued work the Boys’ Brigade does in communities up and down the country, and the group’s activities would not be possible without Captain Alistair Brodie, and the other volunteers who make these activities possible.”
Boys Brigade groups play an active role in many youngsters’ lives across Aberdeenshire, with branches across Aberdeenshire active.
Locally Boys’ Brigade branches include the 1st Fraserburgh, 1st Sandhaven, 1st Rosehearty, 4th Fraserburgh and 5th Fraserburgh.
