This centre has been used many times in the past the company, and both the boys and the staff have always had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. The centre is a large self-catering centre situated on the outskirts of the town of Kirkham in Lancashire, just fifteen minutes drive from Blackpool. We have exclusive use of the centre ans its facilities; which include a large indoor games hall with pool and table tennis tables, an outdoor football pitch, and an adventure playground. As in previous years this was a joint holiday with the Juniors and Company Section, although each section ran their own programme of activities.
