From small beginnings in September 1972, the group has grown to it’s current 110 boys and girls, 10 Officer staff and 30 volunteers, including six Trustees we also have a dedicated School worker team. All BB evenings take place at Guithavon Valley Evangelical Church halls, Witham, plus the BB office, the workshop unit, New Rickstones Academy sports hall and Bradwell Outdoors Centre, for the power boat. The Company celebrated 43 years of BB in Witham on 18th.September 2014 and is a registered charity in it’s own right No. 1098237.
Rather than seeing young people as having “issues that need to be tackled”, Witham BB believes in holistic development which sees the child in the round, as a whole person – physically, emotionally, intellectually, socially, morally, culturally and spiritually. By taking this approach we have the opportunity to improve and enhance a range of quality of life factors for both the young person themselves, and the wider community.
We want Witham to be…
- …a place where children and young people realise that they have talents,
- …a safe place where they have a chance to release and enhance those talents and
- …an adventurous place where they recognise and are given opportunities to use those talents in service in their community and beyond.
Fun, Faith, Fullness and Friendship
