Alton Webteam: September 2016
Girls' Brigade News
Numbers are continuing to increase in the Junior and Senior sections with several girls who attended the 'Bring a Friend' evening at the end of the Summer Term returning to join.
The Explorer numbers are reduced after the promotion of six girls to the Junior section since May. Do you know of any girls from 4½ — 7 years old who might like to join? We'd be very happy to see them at 6pm on a Monday evening or contact me for more information on 01420 85994 or email email@example.com.
Some of our girls have signed up for the District Fun Day to be hosted by the Woking Company on Saturday 24th September. It is on the theme of Circus Skills so should be energetic fun.
On Sunday 9th October we will be joining with the 2nd Alton BB Company to march from the Butts to the church for our annual enrolment service, which starts at 10.45am. This year we will be marching along side streets with our own marshals instead of marching down Butts Road with a police escort.
