Alton Webteam: November 2016
We had a fine day for the Town Remembrance service — the warmest and driest I can remember! Unfortunately we were placed behind some tall scouts so couldn't see what was happening, but could hear well and share in the remembrance of those who sacrificed their lives or health for our freedom.
On Monday 12th December we will be holding a 'Coffee and Carols' evening in aid of Action for Children, starting at 6.30pm in the Church Hall. Everyone is welcome to attend — please ring at the back door for entry.
On Wednesday 21st December our youngest girls and a few of our older girls will be joining with the BB Anchor Boys to present a traditional Christmas Nativity play, starting at 2pm.
Please join us — all are welcome.
