Teds on parade

Teds came to the ATC squadron with me again in what is being the new normal of virtual meetings. They sat and watched as the squadron got to grips with a quiz I had found on Covid-19.

Why a clergyman doing a quiz and not talking about God? Well I was interested in what ‘truths’ the teenagers had picked up from the media about Covid-19 and wanted to make sure they were informed and not scared.

We then had a discussion about highs and lows of lock down of which there were thoughts from both sides of the equation.

Teds visit the ATC Civcon

“Off to the ATC CivCon” I said. “What on earth is all that about” say the Teds. As I explained to them the ATC CivCon is shorthand for the Air Training Corps Civilian Committee. Its basically like your school governors group or your Parent Teachers Association group. Its a group of volunteers who keep an eye on the squadron and make sure the cadets are having a great time and there is enough money in the bank to keep the show on the road.

The squadron has grown quite a bit and the Civcon has also grown quite a bit recently to but there is always room for more members if you are interested. Donna is the girl to contact mainto:donna6465@me.com

We were looking at the organisation of the Winter Ball (which is looking like becoming more like the Spring or Easter Ball) amongst other things. By the time we had finished there was the noise of Teddy snores from the corner of the room. It’s been a long day for my knitted companions.

Teds visit the 2426 ATC Squadron

Teds came with me to visit the local Air Training Corps squadron where I am the Padre. We normally spend half the evening thinking and then the other half letting the ‘inner child ‘ out by playing games.

Last night we talked about New Years Resolutions and how to make changes in our lives, which is never easy. We also talked about instead of having resolutions this year trying to do some Random Acts Of Kindness instead.

After break then we got down to a game of Rummikub. Teds watched. It was quite late by then and they had had a busy day.
