What is the Anchors?

The Anchors is the youngest section in the BB and is for Girls aged between 5 and 8.

What do they do?

The Anchors has lots of fun doing different activities which include making things, crafts, games, sports, going on visits, making friends.

Everything a child in the Anchors does helps them to develop and to think for themselves, in a safe environment.

What else do I need to know?

How long do they meet for?

The weekly section meeting is on a Tuesday from 6-7.30pm.
