The aim of this project was to develop additional visitor accommodation at Ganaway, creating an additional 12 bed space with bathrooms and common area.


The Boy’s Brigade Training and Activity Centre in the Ards Peninsula offers a wide range of outdoor activities to its users, including kayaking, abseiling, football, swimming and more. In order to be able to offer a quality experience to even more people, they applied for funding to upgrade their accommodation so they could offer more beds and common areas to groups.


Funding from DRAP allowed the applicant to hire an architect, design the space and construct and decorate the new accommodation.
