AGB Summer Camp
The AGB Summer Camp was held from the 21-25th July in glorious sunshine. The camp catered for all children from age 4 to 12, members and non-members and each and every child had a fabulous week. This was evident in the numbers that attended every day with nearly 100 children registered for the camp. The summer camp finished off with a fun day on the Friday where the delight continued with giant football games, ball pools, bouncy castles, ‘Soak the Coach’ and loads of football!! Thanks to all the AGB volunteers who helped in any way with the camp; organising, registering and coaching etc throughout the week. Thanks also to all the children who took part and made it such a fun week!
