Merry Christmas from the Anchor Boys!

Our Anchor Boys were the first to get into the festive spirit with their Christmas party on Saturday 25th November. The Anchors had a great time playing games, watching the Lee Mount puppet show and, of course, eating. The games included making our traditional ‘toilet paper snowmen’ and ‘pin the nose on Rudolph’. I did have to field several complaints from disgruntled Anchor Boys during the latter apparently they “couldn’t see anything”. Attempts to explain the point of the blindfold fell on deaf ears and one boy proceeded to remove his before his turn.
A fantastic afternoon was had by all, thanks to Lee Mount for hosting and to all the staff who helped make the event possible.
The Junior and Company Sections have also held events this month. The Juniors held their Quiz Night on Wednesday 22nd November. Thanks to Katie and Ryan for organising the event- all the teams competed well throughout although the staff looked baffled during the music round; I saw a couple of Juniors attempt to explain to their Officer who Harry Styles was!
Congratulations to the team from Elland and Lee Mount for winning the Bible quiz and to Carlton who were this years General Knowledge champions.
The Company Section held their Hockey competition in early November. Congratulations to the team from Salem who were the overall winners on the night. Thanks to all who helped organise/ run the event.
On behalf of everyone at the Halifax Battalion, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a very happy new year.
