Alton Webteam: September 2016
Once again the summer is over and we have started back at Brigade, everything the same, but different.
After a summer programme that included laser quest, bowling and games on the green, we had our summer camp in North Norfolk that was fantastic. A very British mix of weather, from wonderfully hot to being shrouded in sea mist. Activities from a homemade pool (remember the heat?) to swimming in the sea and wide games in the woods, and a new song — almost a camp anthem!
We are now into our new session and looming up on the horizon are the Battalion cross country competition, the national 10 pin bowling and our enrolment service alongside our Friday evening meetings.
After receiving a grant, our band has six new bugles that we will be using on Wednesday evening practices and their public debut will be the enrolment service.
We are very much down on numbers in the company section and that makes doing a lot of things difficult, but we have a good core of boys to build upon for the future.
Pete Burgess — Officer in Charge of company section.

'We don't know how to...
