Alton Webteam: January 2018
All our girls returned to take part in another term of activities, learning about God's love for us and, of course, chat!

Last week we had a room full of bandaged teddy bears having their blood pressure checked and ears inspected. This week we look forward to a visit from a policeman — our very own Myles from BB. We've been learning a new song too — nice tune but no actions so perhaps not one for the parade service in March.
