Alton Webteam: January 2017
We have kicked off the new year with a third place in the Battalion chess competition, 2 company and 2 junior section boys took part for us. In a couple of weeks we have the re-arranged table tennis competition and we hope to make a good account of ourselves there too.
The boys have finished their interest classes and Friday nights now become practice sessions for the day of action in March. This will involve a variety of drill squads, superstar gym tasks and learning a bible passage.
Wednesday night's step up in intensity too as expedition classes' start and the new boys, girls and bugles continue to progress a path towards being ready to lead our church parade in April.
