Alton Webteam: September 2018
The Juniors are back after their summer break. We now have six boys, so they are split into two teams, the names of which are yet to be decided. Four of the boys are going to be working on their Target badge, getting to know more about the Boys' Brigade: its history, its mission, its membership in Britain and across the World and about their own company. Once they achieve their Target badge, these boys can begin working towards their Bronze badge. As well as badge work the boys will be enjoying playing games (sometimes with the Anchors), making things in craft sessions, baking and cooking things in the kitchen and learning about Jesus and how they are part of his family.
At the end of the month there is the annual Junior outdoor 6-a-side football tournament between teams representing Juniors sections from across our Battalion. This year we should be able to field a team, borrowing the odd player or two from other Companies. Lets hope the weather is kind on the day, that we score a few goals and the boys have fun whilst making friends with the boys in the other teams.
Lt. Rolfe Bridson.
