Alton Webteam: January 2016
Anchor Boys finished December with a burst of activity! The last night we joined with the Junior Section to have games and then a round of three different craft activities. Then the Anchors put on a small play about the Nativity featuring a very grumpy inn keeper. Gerrard Worth played this with lots of snoring but I have to say that the others were overcome with shyness and did not show at their best! However with the help of lots of costumes — some more appropriate than others — the play was watched by the Juniors and some very patient parents!
Anchor Boys restarts on Friday 8th January at 6pm when we will have to begin our preparations for Anchor Boy Fun Day with the competition for the best frieze — always a busy time!

Please put the date of Saturday 13th February in your diary — the Anchor Boys and Junior Section of the Boys' Brigade will be holding one of their famous "posh" Coffee Mornings! This year we are supporting the work of the RNLI and the Juniors hope to be visiting the Lifeboat station at Selsey. We had a talk from Kevin from the RNLI a couple of months ago and decided that we would like to support their valuable work. So please come along and have a cup of good coffee served to you by the Boys and enjoy some home baking too.
