Category: 140th Anniversary


Last night the 1st Fraserburgh, 4th Fraserburgh and 1st Rosehearty Juniors came together to celebrate #BB140 with their 140 Sleepover!

As you can see it was a busy night with three teams of Boys taking part in three stations! First it was team games in the hall; then pancake making with Mrs Duthie and Mrs Bruce in the Kitchen; and the assault course run by the 1st Fraserburgh Seniors.

Thanks to Mrs Leel who donated medals for the assault course competition with every members getting either a gold, silver or bronze depending on their teams performance.

It was a late supper of Pizza before bed, the idea being the Boys would fall asleep watching a movie! Nearly worked, but all quiet by 1.45am!

After breakfast this morning all Boys were presented with their 140 Sleepover Badge! Well done all for taking part!

Thanks to the 1st Fraserburgh for hosting at the OPC Centre Halls and thanks to the Leaders and young men for giving their time to ensure it could happen!


This afternoon the 1st Strichen handed over the #140Baton to the 4th Peterhead at Aden House, in Mintlaw. The baton will now make its way to the Area’s most eastern point on the mainland – the Blue Toon!

The hand over party was made up of Liam and Kyle, brothers from Strichen who accompanied Company Captain Steve Wilson and Ryle and Nathanial from Peterhead who were accompanied by Lt Leon Lynch. Well done to all as the weather was not kind today.

We will look forward to seeing what the 4th Peterhead have in store.


Well done to Martin Dunbar, Captain of 4th & 5th Fraserburgh, who this evening is in London celebrating 140 years of the Boys’ Brigade!
He can be seen in the photo with Speaker Lindsay Hoyle in the State Rooms, The Speaker’s House, at the House of Commons.
It must be great to know your work is appreciated by the Boys’ Brigade! It certainly is by us folk in Buchan!
Well done Martin!
