Alton Webteam: October 2016
The big news first, if you hadn't already heard, our team came third, yes 3rd, in the national 10 pin bowling competition!! After many, many years of never getting out of the qualifying round, the boys went all the way to the final. A tremendous effort and result, and as a bonus we get to keep the trophy as it is being retired by the organisers.
We have also had our first battalion competition, the cross country, and a couple of our boys gamely ran around part of Horsell Common to help secure the team a third place.
Our enrolment service went well, using a new route to parade to church with the Girls Brigade, and our new bugles.
After half term we change the feel of Friday nights, and make it a bit less serious. We undertake "interest" classes for the boys. Previous topics have ranged from photography to steam trains and cycle care to stamp collecting. Perhaps you have a hobby or interest that you think you could pass on or talk about to our boys?
The first weekend of half term sees some of our boys attending a new event held at Walton Firs in Chobham. It's called "Octane" and looks like a lot of fun with activities and speakers and a fire. Reports to follow.
