Christine Allan: March 2016
The highlight of this month was the Anchor Boy Fun Day. This year we hosted the event which made it easier in some ways as we did not have to transport the fragile frieze for any great distance!
The day began with some cartoons which kept the Boys occupied while they all arrived and then we moved into team games in various groups. This was a little riotous as many of the Boys were young and took a while to pay attention to what was happening! Lunch is always popular — (many Boys would have eaten theirs by 10.30am if allowed!) Then it was on to crafts which were on the topic of our theme "sea stories in the Bible". While this was going on our judge for the day — our own town Mayor Mrs Pam Jones — was looking at all the friezes and choosing the one which showed one of the stories really well. Our frieze was not the winner but I have to say that I thought it was the most colourful!
The day finished with songs and stories led by the Rev. Andrew Micklfield who is excellent at playing the piano and doing action songs!
Since then the Anchor Boys have been busy making Easter cake, learning about the Easter story and making an Easter garden to take home. We were pleased to welcome two more Boys taking our numbers up to a healthy 9 Boys but there is always room for more!
At our recent parade service Glenda Bentley was formally enrolled as an Officer having completed her basic training. We now just need someone to come forward to help her with Anchor Boys every other week and I can take a step back AGAIN!!
