Alton Webteam: March 2017
Hot off the press from our day of action which took place on 18th March...there are a plethora of certificates on the noticeboard in the hall showing that our boys did very well on the day.
1st place in the scripture quiz, single rank drill, colour party competition, superstars and the surprise event (brain teasers this year), and 2nd place in inspection, 6 a side football and potted sports meant we were placed in every event we entered.
All this resulted in an equal first place for the day overall, exactly the same as last year! With the same company!
The boys have worked hard over the last few weeks and their effort was shown in these results.
Through the rest of March and into April we will be preparing for our annual display as well as getting the band ready for a busy period...our own church parade, the Scouts on St. Georges day, the Display and Battalion Parade all come at us quite quickly
