Josh Maguire and James Hanson were presented with the highest award in the Boys' Brigade, the Queen's Badge, by the Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher at a recent Sunday morning service. Retiring BB Captain Margaret Miskin said, "It is a privilege to stand here to see them receive their awards that they have worked hard for over many years. They have done many things, working in the Boys' Brigade, the church, charities and community as well as sports. Their skills and talents have been nurtured and developed in the BB. It is sad to see them leaving us now they are 18 and a gap year and university call. James has been with us since he was 5 or 6 and Joshua was our youngest ever recruit as his mother Julie was an officer."
In presenting the awards, Sir Henry said that, "Josh and James were an encouragement to other Brigaders. Teamwork builds confidence and these same skills are of great benefit in later life, especially for the first job. A Queen's Badge on the CV will enable them to explain what they had to do to get it. The attributes and skills needed are what companies want."
