The core age range of the Anchor Section is from 5 to 8 years. We accept members in school years 1 -3
This age group has its own programme called Anchors based on five areas; body, mind, spirit, community and creativity. The emphasis is on fun and programme activities include games, crafts, stories and opportunities to learn and share in new experiences. Throughout their time in the Anchors Section, children can gain badges and recognition for their participation in the programme.
Children in the Anchor Section wear a uniform of a blue polo shirt and red sweatshirt. Members also wear school trousers and footwear as part of the uniform.
Safe & caring
All our adult volunteers undertake a disclosure (criminal records) check as part of their registration with The Boys’ Brigade, and are trained to provide a safe and caring environment for all children.
What it costs
We charge a subscription fee, currently it is £12.00 per term or £30.00 for the full session (3 terms). This said, we don’t want any child to miss out because of cost, so if you have any concerns about finance please speak to a leader in the local group in confidence about this.
