Alton Webteam: April 2018
With the Easter break there has been just one meeting of the Anchor and Junior Sections in April at the time of writing. As the 34th Annual Inspection and Display is due to take place on Friday 11th May at the church, the boys are now busy preparing a show for their parents, families and guests. Without giving too much away, they have been rehearsing performance pieces, practising games and working on presentations. Preparations will continue in earnest at the next two meeting nights so that the boys are ready for the rehearsal evening when they can run through their contributions alongside the young men from the Company and Senior Sections. The Display is also the occasion when annual badges and prizes are presented and boys who have reached the relevant ages move on to the next BB section.
