Alton Webteam: May 2016
It was really nice to see the church full for our recent Inspection and Display. Lots of parents and siblings came and we were able to offer refreshments afterwards which were very welcome after a hot night!
The Anchor Boys enjoyed themselves putting on a show of their games and their Makaton signing. However I have to say the play really fell apart! Suffice it to say we had three very tearful Boys five minutes before they were due to go on! Real stage fright! So apologies for the lack of sound — normal service will be resumed I am sure this Friday!
We are now into our Summer programme and welcome any Boy who will be going into year 1 in September. We are not meeting every Friday so watch the notices or give me a phone if you want to know what we are up to. This week we are doing various crafts and the following weeks we will be visiting Alice Holt, having a pizza party, going to Southsea again and the highlight will be the special night of Circus Skills with instructors coming to show how to juggle and other tricks! See you there!
We are also pleased that Kimberly Winder will be joining the Anchor Boy staff in September and this will allow me to slide out gracefully (again!) and be able to help when needed.
