Happy 100th Birthday to the Junior Section

Wow, it has been a busy month!
Our BB Companies in Halifax are back in action following the summer break and we've kept them all busy with several Battalion events.
One of the highlights was a Junior 100 birthday party held in Elland on Wednesday 27th September. There was a great turnout from the Juniors and they enjoyed playing marbles, doing some 'minute to win it challenges' and making Lego creations. No party is complete without a cake and we would like to thank Jenny Heavyside for making the cake (pictured)- it went down very well!
The Juniors have also held their traditional team games event at Salem. Congratualtions to the Illingworth/ Salem team who won the competition. The Juniors had great fun as always.
The Company Section have also held two events, the 5-a-side football event and the volleyball competition. The 5-a-side was just a friendly tournament and all the lads enjoyed taking part. The standard of football was good, the standard of refereeing......only joking Dan! The Volleyball competition took place in October and we saw all the teams improve as the night went on. Congratualtions to Salem for taking home the trophy!
We also held our Founders Day service in October. It was fantastic to see so many young people get presented with their Presidents and Queens badges. Another highlight was presenting last years Battalion charity, Andy's Man Club, with a cheque for £695,a great effort. #itsoktotalk
Our final event in October is the Anchor Boy Fun Evening which will take place on Friday 13th at Boothtown. We have some fantastic activities lined up for the boys- hope to see you then!
