Little Brother contest

We organised a Little Brother challenge, this consisted of 2 teams, a 12 hour lock in, with team challenges every 2 hours and a vote to evict a member of the opposing team as well as a member of their own team. Points were awarded on behaviour as well as completion of the tasks. The first person was chosen for eviction by both teams for eating all the biscuits. It proved very successful and all enjoyed it. The Mayor Randal Sanders presented a prize to the winner.
