2nd Alton Boys' Brigade — Junior Section
After the summer break, the Junior Section began meeting again on Friday 9th. As the weather was fine and the daylight lasted into the early evening, we took advantage by taking the boys to play outdoor games in the Public Gardens. The boys still had plenty of energy to play games even though they had been in their schools all day.
As the nights now draw in, we will be usually be found the church hall on Fridays. The boys' energies will be directed towards a mix of crafts, skills and achievement activities, and games of course, whilst they find out more about Jesus' love for them. We look forward to all the friendship, fun and fellowship that the Junior Section will offer the boys throughout the autumn.
