2nd Alton Boys' Brigade - Junior Section News

Home » News » January 2017

Junior Section meetings have resumed after a break for Christmas. Part of the Spring programme will be menu planning and cooking sessions. Some of the boys have already planned and prepared a starter salad for their menu.
Next Saturday will see a Juniors team take part in the Battalion Indoor Team Games afternoon over in Fleet. As well as a 5-a-side football tournament, they will compete with other Juniors from other Companies in a series of different relay games and challenges. The event is always great fun and helps the boys show their teamwork and sportmanship.
Much of the coming programme will be taken up with preparing for the Battalion Competitions Day in April. The theme this year is Jesus' Miracles, and the boys will make artwork, perform a play and read poems based around this. They will also be practising a routine for the figure marching competition.
2017 marks the centenary of the BB extending its mission to advance Christ's kingdom among boys by including 8 to 11 year olds for the first time. Initially the section was known as the Boy Reserves, this became the Life Boys and is now known as the Junior Section. The Hampshire BB battalions are planning to mark this important milestone at a special fun day in May with Juniors throughout the county invited to take part. The centenary reminds us that we are part of that continuing mission to share the Good News with young people.
