I am the Light of the World
I am the light of the world
This new style group work competition was introduced for the 17/18 session and is being held again during the 18/19 session. It is particularly aimed at Companies that have smaller numbers in their Anchor Boy section; it is something for them to work on collectively. This year groups are asked to collage and colour a lighthouse scene. Full directions and how to get a large A2 copy of the template to work on was enclosed for the Anchor Boy Officer in Charge in the September mailing.
