The Boys’ Brigade, North West District Training Centre – Kirkham
Kirkham, Near Blackpool
Monday 11th April – Saturday 16th April 2016
For our holiday in 2016 we decided to return to one of our favourite destinations, The Boys’ Brigade, Northwest District Training Centre at Kirkham near Blackpool.
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.
Activities for the holiday included vists to a Theme Park, Go-Karting or Paintball, and the attractions of Blackpool, as well as Swimming, Ten-Pin Bowling and a visit to the cinema.
