The 2nd Chesterfield Boys’ Brigade enjoyed an evening with a Chinese theme to celebrate the year of The Snake. The Anchors made a snake with painted paper plates, used chopsticks to eat sultanas and played a Chinese game. The Junior Section enjoyed making and eating a chicken stir fry and sampling various Chinese teas.

The Brampton TimeOut Group met at Storrs Road Church Centre after the first February meeting had to be cancelled due to inclement weather. The group enjoyed playing scrabble, cribbage, rummy and dominoes and continued with the jigsaw puzzle which has been challenging many of the members.
