What is the Anchor Section?

The Anchor Section is the youngest section in the BB and is for children aged between 5 and 8.

What do they do?

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

How long do they meet for?

The weekly section normally meets for 1 hour (please check local group details)
