Bugles uncropped

While a new calendar year is just beginning we are, of course, only half way through our BB year and in the next month or so we get the next couple of competitions done. The first is the battalion chess and then the re-arranged table tennis tournament. We should also receive the test papers for the drill competitions that take place at our day of action in March, so we can at least think about starting to practice the moves to help us retain the trophies for these ones!

Our interest classes continue and include snooker — hopefully, the snooker table will have new felt on it before too long! We've also started following a workout program in PT....much to some of the boys disdain.

We had a visit from Councillor Graham Hill at the end of the last session, so that he could see the bugles that a council grant went towards. We think he was impressed with the noise that they made, especially as we have taken 5 boys from the third year of Junior section into the band to get them started early.
