At the 30th we are very proud to facilitate all levels of the DofE award, in fact we have two Gold groups on their practice weekend at this very moment. For anyone interested in the Duke of Edinburgh award 🥉 🥈 🥇 scheme please speak to one of the Company Section leaders for more info.Imagine giving your child the opportunity to be the very best they can be. Introduce them to the DofE and they’ll gain valuable skills, have incredible experiences and make friends for life.

Open to anyone aged 14 to 24 (not just fans of the great outdoors), the DofE encourages teamwork and social interaction and helps young people to stand out from the crowd when applying for university and job.

Check out our Open Award Centres, and get involved today!

I knew David my whole life! I remember him being one of my bb officers when I went into company section in 1st saintfield. To this day I still remember my first time trying box work, jumping over someone's back and kicking David right on the thumb. He just shook it off as if nothing had happened and I'd be near certain it couldn't have been far off broken. He just made me go back into the line and try again! A great man who will be greatly missed. Thoughts and prayers go to Mae and the whole family from everyone in the 30th!

AndyWith heavy hearts we let you know about the passing of our former B.B. Officer David Glover.

David was involved in our Company Section for many years and had a huge impact in the lives of many boys.
A man of great faith, a dry wit and a big heart. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.

Some of us remember a camp where he showed the boys how to do a handstand....and then proceeded to travel the full length of a football pitch walking on his hands! Great memories.

Funeral service at 12 noon on Tuesday 7th August from Saintfield Baptist Church.

“We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Stedfast and sure while the billows roll
Fastened to the Rock which cannot move,
Grounded firm and deep in the Savior’s love”
