JS visit to Selsey -colour

2nd Alton Boys' Brigade — Junior Section

The Juniors have been busy with Competition's Day preparations. They have completed and submitted their Zacchaeus-themed artworks and handwriting task, and have begun working on the drama, reading through the script and allocating roles. The boys show plenty of acting talent so their performance will hopefully impress the judges on the day.

Our Company Chaplain, Revd. Keith Underhill, came along to talk to the Anchor Boys and Juniors about the Last Supper. The boys listened well and asked some interesting questions.

The last meeting before Easter saw the annual Easter egg competition for the Anchor Boys and Juniors. Boys bring along a decorated egg and then vote for their favourite. The entries were fantastic, colourful, clever and funny. This year's winner was Oliver Gower with his Arnold Schwarzen-egg-er egg-stravagansa.

On the chilly morning of Saturday 19th, eleven Juniors went down to Selsey to visit the lifeboat station, meet some of the RNLI volunteers and present a cheque for the funds raised at the recent coffee morning. The boys saw the two boats stationed there, the large Tyne-class all-weather boat and the smaller inshore RIB boat. They wanted to know about the launching of the big boat — it leaves the boathouse by shooting down a steep slipway into the water. In fact the existing lifeboat station is currently being replaced by one that will house a new Shannon-class boat which is launched from the beach by a tractor and carriage system, so our boys will be amongst the last to see the slipway boat. The RNLI were very pleased to receive the Juniors' donation of £173.93, so the boys would again like to thank all those who came to their coffee morning.

 

The Juniors would also like to wish everyone a very Happy Easter.

Lt. Rolfe Bridson.
