The Boys' Brigade North West District Training Centre

The Boys’ Brigade
North West District Training Centre

This centre has been used many times in the past by 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 and 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 will be a joint holiday with the Juniors and Company Section. Normally the sections run their own programme of activities, however this year this is in a more limited capacity due to the low number of boys’ attending.
