Alton Webteam: November 2016
This month is a tale of two halves.
The first half of the month includes Remembrance and the band leading the parade through the town, a very special event and a great advert for our young people. It was, as always, a very well supported and poignant event.
The second half of the month see's us entering our next battalion competition, the 5 a side football. Historically we have not been especially successful in this but, who knows, perhaps this is our year!
Meanwhile, our Friday night meetings continue with our interest classes...no models built or painted yet, but noises are emanating from the church in music class, and there is a new shelf in our cupboard!
I'm sure that every other article is telling you about the Christmas fayre on the 26th. We will be in the hall at the back of the church with some games to entertain your youngsters while you look around the stalls.
