We have had a busy start to the New Year as we get busy on our Frieze for the Fun Day. The theme this year is "Sea stories from the Bible" and we have chosen the "Great catch" to illustrate. This means many fish so we have been making as many as possible using different techniques. The event this year is being hosted by the 2nd Alton and we have been lucky in securing the help of the Town Mayor to judge the friezes and give the closing talk to the Boys.
As we are hosting the event this involves the usual "refreshments" at 10am, lunch and some clearing up so if you feel like helping you will be very welcome! Give me a call on 84739 and I'll give you a job!
Good news on the numbers front — we have a new Boy taking us up to 6! Glenda Bentley has almost finished her leadership training and will be qualified to lead the Anchor Boys. All we need now is another volunteer to help with this small group. We already have a mum helper who comes every other week but we really do need another pair of hands to cover the other weeks — speak to me!!

Christine Allan (84739) officer in charge.
