Alton Webteam: March 2018
Our Brigaders completed making these cute cuddly toys! Well done Libby, Josephine, Daisy and Sophie!!
The Explorer section have spent 5 weeks thinking about 'Helpful People'. We had an exciting visit from a real policeman (Myles from BB) one week and the next week Robert Bentley told us about the things he does to try to keep Alton both tidy and beautiful. In our last week we remembered all the people who help us — there should be a collage we made in the Holybourne Room, if it hasn't fallen off the wall! Then we acted the story of the Good Samaritan and tried to think of ways we could be 'helpful people'.
Our Juniors/Seniors have been learning about obedience in general and Abraham's obedience to God in particular. As part of their consideration of obedience they followed instructions to make some yummy shortbread!
We will be hosting a District Training Day on Saturday 10th March, when our Young Leaders will have the opportunity for further training and some adult volunteers will be doing 'Life to the Full' training.
On Sunday 18th March we will be on parade with 2nd Alton Boys' Brigade at the 10.45am service. Hope to see you there!
