If the sound of blaring bugles and thumping drums has become a common noise in the air on Wednesday nights in Milcombe, that is because Boys Brigade has arrived in the village.
1st Bloxham Boys Brigade has been using the village hall at Milcombe for the last few months to run its Company Section for young men aged between 11 and 16. Previously venues in Bloxham were used but as the section increased in strength and outgrew its existing venue there was a need to look elsewhere. No halls could be found at the right time in Bloxham so Milcombe Village Hall came to the rescue and the boys meet there now on Wednesday nights from 6:30 to 8:30pm.
The Boys Brigade offers a number of activities and opportunities for boys of all ages. So far this year the Company Section has been learning about law and order, how to research their family tree, a comedy night, running their own tuck shop, visits from guest speakers, along with numerous games including pool, table tennis, darts and board games along with a weekly Christian Faith class. The Boys Brigade strongly has its roots in the church and teaching boys Christian values. We have also started a bugle and drum marching band (which will soon be ready to perform) and in the summer the boys will be doing outdoor activities including camping, map reading, geocaching, BBQs and a weekend away at Hook Norton Study Centre. We also recently put up the Christmas decorations at the village hall as a gesture to the hall committee.
1st Bloxham also offers sections for younger boys and our 5-8 year olds meet on Tuesdays at the Ellen Hinde Hall in Bloxham from 4:30 to 5:30 and our Junior Section for boys aged 8-11 runs on the same night and venue from 5:40 to 7:10pm.
If your son would be interested in joining any of our sections please contact Carl Simms.
