Each year the Boys’ Brigade take part in assisting the Royal Highland show with messengers who are provided with duties to assist with the running of the show each day. It is a major Scottish event and takes place over four days in June, which for some would mean time off from school!
This is a great experience and day out for our young members to go along and take part in, if this is something of interest to any individuals within the Company, then please complete the entry form attached.
As well as young volunteers we will require at least one officer to attend the grounds each day and from those submitted we will then choose one adult to be the dedicated contact for the duration of the day.
Our office will contact the schools and request permission of leave for any school age individuals who wish to attend the show on the Thursday/Friday dates, and although we do this, parents must also notify the school nearer the time.
All relevant show information, meet points, travel etc will be confirmed and issued to those participating after the end of May, along with wristbands etc to allow entry to the show grounds. Any questions contact the office.
Please only submit your name for a slot if you are fully committed to attending to cover these duties.
