Alton Webteam: December 2017
Our meetings in December helped the boys learn about Advent and Christmas. Stories and crafts were linked to the season with games and refreshments along the way.
The Junior boys enjoyed the chance to build and paint plastic models of ships and planes.
A number of the boys also created their own Nativity in a Box during the town's Yuletide Festival when the Church was open and offering refreshments to all.
At the final meeting of the term the boys has a Christmas Party. There were games, music, pass the parcel, craftmaking, mini-cake icing, mince pies and biscuits. The boys left with a Christmas party bag. But the most important part was talking about the meaning of Christmas and the boys showing they have a good knowledge of the Christmas story and its true significance, that God so loves us that he sent his son Jesus to be our Saviour.
The Anchors and Juniors would like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and thank you all for supporting them throughout the year at the events they participate in and with your prayers.
Lt. Rolfe Bridson.

'We don't know how to...
