Two Boys Brigade (BB) units from Spalding, plus groups from Peterborough and Sleaford, took on Long Sutton on home soil at an annual sports day in the town.

Long Sutton Baptist Church played host to a day of sporting challenges, including pool, table tennis, chess, draughts and darts, with a variety of individual and team trophies at stake.

It’s an annual event the boys look forward to because they meet boys from other Boys Brigade companies

Keith Blanchard, secretary, South Lincolnshire Boys Brigade Battalion

Organiser Keith Blanchard said: “It’s an annual event the boys look forward to because they meet boys from other BB companies and there are trophies for each competition, as well as an overall trophy.

“The lads all helped out in judging the events and it’s good for teaching them about competitiveness and helping them with their people skills as well.”
