Alton Webteam: January 2017
The Anchors are busy getting ready for the Anchor Boy fun day, which is being held in Fleet on Saturday 11th February. This is a chance for the boys to get together with other companies in our battalion and to make new friends.
We have the theme of Joseph this year and the boys have started work on their freeze for the competition with, of course, Joseph and his coat of many colours taking centre stage.
As always, if you know of any boy in school year one or above who would like to join us please do let me know.
