The Anchor Boys have had a very busy month so far!

At the start of the month we were thinking about Remembrance Day and some of you will have seen the poster in the Prayer corner with the thoughts from the Boys.

The Anchor Boy Fun Day takes place early next year so we have to begin the Frieze soon and this year we are tackling the story of the "Big Catch of Fish". We have been luck to be given a real "Keep net" from one of the parents so we will be able to use this to put our decorated fish inside as part of the frieze.

The highlight of the month has been our "race "night! The Boys made hobby horses from swimming "Noodles" and scraps of material and then we had races in the Foyer — great hilarity and noise! The horses were judged and rosettes awarded for the fastest horse, the one with the best name, the one which looked most like his owner etc! A great night but not one to be attempted too often!

Now we are looking forward to Christmas and making decorations. Our last night is 11th December and we meet again on Friday 8th January 2016

We are always pleased to welcome new Boys of any age — Anchors from school year one and older Boys can be fitted into the Junior section or Company section.

Spring is a wonderful time of year when after the deadness of winter new life is all around us in the beauty of creation.One of my favourite hymns is: For the beauty of the earth, for...

We had a great time at Messy Easter on the first Saturday in April 2019.After refreshments and a group game we listened to a cartoon story describing the story of Easter. There were lots of Easter crafts to enjoy such as painting giant Easter Eggs, making Jammy Dodger tomb biscuits, Clay Gardens, bead & cross key rings, scrunchy paper crosses, pop up Jesus/tomb figures and Palm Sunday...
