Alton Webteam: September 2017
After the six-week summer break children are back at school and so Boys' Brigade meetings have resumed on Friday evenings. Having had six boys move on to Company Section in June, we now have three boys in the Junior Section. We will be working closely with the Anchor Boys during our coming programme. The older Juniors have been given responsibility as Leading Boys for the two teams as the boys compete at meetings in games and other activities. The Junior boys will be working towards gaining their various badges and there may be upcoming Battalion competitions for them to enter. There will be new friends to make at such Battalion events following the recent creation of a new Battalion which now includes three Companies from the Reading area.
We would really like to see more boys in the Junior Section who can share in the games, the activities, the challenges and the fun whilst learning of Christ's love for us all. Please spread the word.
Lt. Rolfe Bridson.

'We don't know how to...
