2nd Alton Boys' Brigade - Junior Section

Home » News » June happenings 2017

In Guildford, on a very hot Saturday, the Junior Section took part in the annual Battalion Sports Day. Six boys were present, including five of our recently transferred Third Years, who despite now meeting as part of the Company Section are eligible to participate in the Sports Day as Juniors. There were plenty of good performances in the track and field events including Pedro winning the Cricket Ball Throwing for his age group and our 4 x 100m relay team of Tommy, Ben, Ollie and Churchill finishing 2nd in their race. Overall the team finished 3rd in Junior Sports Day.

At a recent Friday evening meeting the Juniors, along with the Anchor Boys, met David Betts of North Camp Methodist Church who had the boys plate spinning, juggling, building spaghetti and marshmallow structures and acting out the story of David.
On another evening the boys watched a presentation all about the RNLI as well as doing craft and cooking activities with a nautical theme.
The Juniors would like to thank everyone who supported their Charity Coffee morning held at the church on Saturday 10th June. The boys hosted the event, inviting customers to choose a table, select their cakes and place their drinks orders. The boys then brought orders to the table and dealt with the payments for refreshments. It was a busy morning, the boys were kept busy, though the odd cup of hot chocolate seemed to provide them with the energy to wait on their customers. Monies raised (£205) will go towards the Church's Toilet Twinning Project. Such events are a great opportunity for the boys to volunteer their time in service to others, both near and far, and a means of the boys meeting some of the people who support them as fellow members of their Christian family.
