The Anchor Boys

Anchors is for Boys in school years 1 to 3.

The Programme

This age group has its own programme based on six areas: Get Active, Get Into the Bible, Get Creative, Get Learning, Get Adventurous and Get Involved. 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 Anchors, Boys can gain badges and recognition for their participation in the programme.

Throughout the year the Worcestershire Battalion, to which our Company belongs, holds several activity fun days for Anchors from across the Battalion's area.

The Uniform

Boys in Anchors wear a blue polo shirt and red BB sweatshirt, together with school trousers and shoes.

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

A subscription of £4.50 per month covers the running costs of the Company. It's also possible to pay the subscription per term or per Brigade Session (Sept-Aug), instead of each month.

Uniform costs vary, but are typically between £10 and £20.

When and where we meet

Anchors meet on Thursdays from 6pm until 7:15pm. We don't meet during school holidays, such as half-term breaks.

We're part of, and meet at, The United Church Lye which can be found at:
The United Church Lye,
Upper High Street,
