Alton Webteam: June 2018
We are part way through our summer programme, with 10 pin bowling, laser-quest and an evening of board games at the church already done, and a trip to Coral Reef pool and mountain biking at Frensham Common to look forward to.
A few of us spent the day at the towns' Party in the Park in an effort to increase our numbers, especially in the junior section (8-11 year olds), and we had a fairly good response with Superhero masks being made and cork boats floated.
The Battalion Sports Day at the end of June is a day for all the boys in the company, and the last big event of the year. The Battalion Trophy is also presented to the "best" company.
Our band is playing at the St. Lawrence fete on Saturday 7th July so feel free to come along and offer support.
