Alton Webteam: February 2016
The Anchor Boys recently held a "bring a friend" night with great success! That night we had 4 new Boys so we hope they stay! They have been thrown in at the deep end as we had to get them into uniform at once so that they can take part in this week's Anchor Boy Fun Day when we are hosting the Day for about 40 little Boys!!
Activities this month included making soap for Valentine's Day. This was very successful — so lifelike that one Boy tried eating it when he got home!
Do let me know if there are any other Boys year 1 upwards who would like to try Anchors.
