Alton Webteam: January 2018
After the Christmas break we welcomed the boys back to Anchors and Juniors on Friday evenings. The Anchors are busy preparing for their Fun Day which takes place in February. The theme this year is The Creation and so they are working on a group artwork that will be entered in the competition that is part of the Fun Day. They will also need to be a good team together as exciting games will be another part of the Day. At each of our meetings they show they are keen to play, currently the rope jump game seems a favourite with the Anchors and Juniors even if it leaves the leader turning the rope dizzy and out of breath.
The Juniors have worked with the Anchors on their crafts, built plastic model ships and planes for themselves and refuelled the boys and leaders by making and serving squash, tea, coffee and biscuits. They have also made excellent Chocolatey Crush Biscuits using the microwave to melt the chocolate, great energy to crush the digestives and the fridge to cool the mixture in time for that evening's refreshments to be served. The Anchors loved them; the only complaint being that they wanted another one (and they did get another to take home with them).
