The 5th Swindon Boy's Brigade Company is Swindon's only Boy's Brigade Company.

We currently have vacancies for Boys aged five to eight years, the Anchor Boys and Boys aged eight to 11 years, the Junior Section.

We do a variety of activities every week, with a structured programme. We have joined Gloucestershire Battalion for different events over the past few months. These include Football competition, Swimming gala, 10 pin bowling, recently two Senior Boys took part in the Hike competition, with map reading, challenges at each check-point during a 10 mile hike.

We give Boys the opportunity to learn new things, make friends, and be rewarded for their work with badges and awards.

We have been based in Stratton St Margaret for over forty years.

Places are limited, so do not miss out, to find out more, please contact us at Teresa Daglish Company Captain
