The 1st Tamworth Company is part of the national uniformed youth organisation and plays an important part in the life of our church with 4 sections based on the age of the boys:-

We meet on Tuesday evenings generally throughout the year:

  • Anchor Boys 6.00-7.00pm for boys aged 5 to 8 years
  • Junior Section 6.30-8.00pm for boys aged 8 to 11 years
  • Company Section 7.30-9.30pm for boys aged 11 to 15 years
  • Senior Section 7.30-9.30pm for boys aged 15 to 18 years

A comprehensive and varied badge-work programme of activities for all sections is based upon developing life skills, providing fun and fellowship for all age groups in a safe and supportive environment by skilled and trained leaders.

We are one of thirteen companies that make up The Mid-Staffs & Sandwell Battalion where all our sections take part in the inter-company competitions throughout the year such as:-

Sports Day               Picture Competition       Connect 4           Anchor Christmas Fun           Quizzes

Table Tennis            Anchor Fun Day              Drill                     Movement to Music               Cross Country

Our company was founded in 1960 and is still going strong with capacity in all sections for growth. New members are always welcome where boys are able to develop friendships and lasting memories of great times in the BB so:-

“Why not come along and see one of our sections in action”

Boys who become members of the Company and Senior Sections have the opportunity of gaining a President’s Badge and then going on to gain the highest award in the brigade – ‘The Queen’s Badge’. Over 30 boys in our company have gained this award over the years.

If you would like to know more the best person to contact is our company captain – Mark Vernon whose telephone number is 07717 438393 (evenings and weekends only) or email address is markandrachael97@gmail.com
