What's Happening in the Company Section in Northern Ireland
Over the last 6 months the Training and Programme Officer and the Chairpersons of our NID Sectional Committees have been meeting regularly via Zoom. We have journeyed together from the start of lock-down; thinking, planning and praying for what the 20/21 session entails for our Anchors, Juniors, Company & Senior sections within the NI District. From these discussions we have pressed pause on some of the usual activities that we know and love from the yearly calendar and we have been creatively thinking of a different and exciting programme to challenge, entertain and engage with our children and young people.
NEW! For the 20/21 session we are excited to announce various new and creative competitions and challenges including the Six in Six Challenge (details above) which has been developed for all sections and can be enjoyed BB at Home style or socially distanced at your company night depending on your local circumstances.

We have collectively decided to not hold any Northern Ireland District face-to-face competitions during the 20/21 session. We firmly believe the focus right now is getting BB restarted at a local level. There will be no National Competitions for
Company Section/Seniors this session and we will not be running our annual conferences in 20/21. We really look forward to seeing you engage in the activities planned for this year and pray for you as you plan and prepare to return to BB in these strange times.
