That the Parliament congratulates the 8th Falkirk Boys' Brigade Company on its centenary celebrations; applauds the work of its volunteers and members and the dynamic and positive part they play in the community; appreciates the opportunities and life enriching experiences it has provided to the tens of thousands of boys who have been members; recognises that this role continues and the Company maintains the tradition of a canvas camp each summer and is active in both the Battalion and nationally through participating in competitive sports such as football, volleyball and table tennis, and wishes the Company, and its Captain, Paul Mitchell, a wonderful centenary year, with many more to follow.
