Our Events

BLYM’s annual Fun-day is held every year, this year it will be held on Sunday the 8th of July 2018. From the age of 9 years old up to 18 years old, all are able to come and enjoy the entire day of fun and games. From a huge range of activities from walk on water balls to raft building and the infamous topper run. We also offer kayaking and various other activities. You will definitely need a good lunch so we provide a tasty BBQ that even the adults (parents) can come and enjoy. All the activities are run by our expert instructors, in a safe and fun environment where the kids are highly supervised. This event is packed full of energy and a guaranteed great day out, hosted but BLYM’s Youth Team; this is definitely a date not to be missed!

Date: 8th July 2018 (save the date)
