Alton Webteam: October 2018
On a lovely Saturday afternoon at the end of September, two of our Juniors played in the Battalion 6-a-side football tournament held in Fleet. They joined together with two boys from 1st Woodley Juniors and borrowed two more boys from 1st Guildford and 2nd Fleet to make a six for each match. By playing in a joint team they got to know boys from other companies and share the fun. There will soon be another Battalion sporting event for our Juniors, hopefully more boys can go, with more fun to be had and friendships to be made.
In our Friday meetings the boys have made parachutists, bird feeders, planted bulbs for the Spring and decorated biscuits. They've also thought about Jonah, the lost sheep and God's promise of his love for each one of us.
On Sunday 21st, the Boys' and Girls' Brigades had their annual enrolment service, marching behind the Company band from near to The Butts to the Church in the sunshine. The enrolment service welcomes new members of the company and both they, existing members, the leaders and the Church congregation commit to supporting the Brigade in its mission to spread the Good News to young people.
The day was also the occasion for one of our Juniors, Tommy O'Brien, to move up to the Company section.
