2nd Alton Boys' Brigade - Junior Section

Home » News » News

The most important event of the past month was the boys' participation in the Remembrance Parade and Service. This year the Anchor Boys were invited to parade along with the Juniors, Company and Senior boys, our Girls' Brigade and the town's other uniformed organisations that take part in the annual ceremony. The boys on parade marched from the Market Square to the Cairn, participated in the service and then marched back again. They were a credit to themselves, their parents and carers and the Brigade. The respect the boys demonstrated on the occasion shows that the service of the men and women who gave so much during the First World War and other wars since continues to be remembered by young people.
A Light Party was held on Tuesday 31st October with many of our Anchors and Juniors attending along with children from other organisations connected to the church. They all had a lot of fun: playing games, watching videos, eating cakes and searching for sweets hidden around the church. They all managed to pass the "eating the apples dangling on a string" challenge. They also proved that they are not only loud on Friday evenings.
With Advent due to begin soon, the Anchor and Junior meetings will begin to focus on the message of hope that comes with the birth of our Saviour. The boys will hear Bible stories and do crafts and activities that reflect the good news of that very first Christmas.
