SIX boys from 4th Carluke (Kirkton) Boys’ Brigade have been presented with their Queen’s Badges for outstanding achievement.
It’s the highest award that can be gained in the movement - and the youngsters, Robert Cunningham, John Kennedy, Graham Kidd, Fraser Montgomery, Stewart Murphy and Greg Pollock, received them at Kirkton Church recently.
Kirkton BB captain, Eleanor Selfridge, said: “They have all done so well.
“There is a lot to do to achieve it including 30 hours of community service which saw them work in charity shops and other ways in helping the local community.
“They deserve a huge amount of credit for the work they put in - it is not easy for 17 and 18-year-old boys to find them time while studying for their Highers or having a job.”
