Tomorrow, Tuesday 10th September, will see the start of or 2013/14 session. All section restart with a full programme of activities.
The following week, Tuesday 17th September, is a special night for anyone wishing to join or just come along and try out BB for the evening. If you’re interested please look into the section description on this site to work out which age group you belong and come along! If you’re not sure just use the Contact Us feature and ask.
Here’s to another great session!
After a fair delay caused by real life the site is fully accessible again, albeit not as polished as it was.
Apologies that our site doesn’t quite look as good as it did. It looks like a recent update has caused our normal theme to misbehave.
I hope normal service will be resumed at some point !
Asteroid mining is just so dangerous, the miners need a hospital a bit more local than planet Earth. Here’s our Lego Engineers’ solution, including an intensive care facility and a quarantine section (the yellow building). At least the lonely patient has a garden to look at – but I’m not sure about the opening windows! Notice the recovery sled, along with shovel for digging miners out of collapsed tunnels.
Design by Thomas, Andrew and Cameron.
This afternoon we trekked over to Bedford to take part in the Battalion dodgeball competition. This is the first time that the section has taken part and I’m pleased to say that we didn’t come last, in fact we came third. So well done Coelin, Reese and Liam a great effort! Plus I think that they thoroughly enjoyed the competition.
This week was National Beat Bulling Week and the Juniors started off the evening by watching the following YouTube video
Celebrities On YouTube To Beat Bullying
The boys then went on to create some anti-bullying posters which you can see in the video below, where they share their thoughts on bullying.
Our Lego architects have been designing and building again – the theme this time was the Olympics. Hopefully you can see the stadium, running track, pole vault, long jump pit, TV broadcast room, swimming pool, weight lifting, gymnastics and wheelchair marathon. We even included a bit of the Olympic Village, with a food stall.
(Architects: Chris, Cameron, Matt, Lucas)
… well we’ve been back for 4 weeks now and boy has the time flown.
One major change this year is that our Amicus section will not be running due to inconsistent numbers over the last session. If you are interested in Amicus then please contact me.
Space in Anchors
Over the years it’s interesting to see the ebb and flow of the various ages groups and at this time we now have spaces in our Anchor Boys (School years 1-3). Again if you know someone that would like to join, then please contact me.
… the 1st Bletchley Company, The Boy’s Brigade. We’re not in at the moment, due to the summer holidays. Please leave a message and we’ll get back to you when we return on Tuesday 11th September.
Alternatively pop on over to MK Summer Camp to see what some of our young people got up to at the start of the summer holidays.
Today 7 of our Juniors traveled over to Luton to defend last year’s Triathlon win. The competition was, quite naturally, in three parts; Endurance, Skill and Brain. This year the endurance was 2 laps around a cricket field, the skill was a collection of challanges such as shooting a a mini football goal. The brain challange revolved around Countdown like puzzles.
We had enough boys to be able to enter 2 teams. I’m glad to say that we came 1st and 2nd ! Well done boys!
And here’s the whole squad;

To celebrate we stopped for a round of McFlurries on the way home! Apologies to parents for being a touch late
