On Friday the 13th November, the 10th South Shields Boys' Brigade and Girls' Association celebrated their awards night. All of the children and young adults received badges for their year in the Brigade. Two of our older members, Megan Dennison and James Gates, received their Queen's badge from the Deputy Mayor and Mayoress. This is the highest badge to be awarded within the Brigade and as a company we are very proud of these two members. Megan is the first girl in South Tyneside to achieve this award! We also celebrated those who received their President badge and bronze Duke of Edinburgh award. As a Boys' Brigade we are very strong on smartness and attendance and within all four age sections we presented trophies to those who scored the most points during the year.
