Lancaster Boys and Girls Club is a charitable organisation established in 1929, which aims to cater for young people, between the ages of eight to 18 years, to provide a positive safe environment for their development and learning. The Club has a successful sporting history with dedicated sports sessions each week which utilise both the outdoor and indoor facilities of the Club and has over 4,500 contacts per year with young people in the area.

Numerous local people have benefitted from their involvement with the club over the years and it counts amongst its old members prominent and well-respected members of the Lancaster community. Perhaps its best known past member is a certain Frank Ableson, who was best remembered for his promising boxing skills, but later gained fame under his stage name Frankie Vaughan!

The club leader is Steven Naylor who has been leading youth work for over 18 years and has completed a BA (Hons) in Youth and Community Development work. He is currently studying for a Masters in Youth and Community at the University of Cumbria and also chairs the Lancaster District Children and Young people Multi Agency Forum and represents this group on the Lancaster District Children and Young People’s Trust.

Steven was delighted to welcome APrGM Tony Harrison, together with Jim Wilson the Chairman of the Lancaster and District Group and vice-chairman Martin Baxendale to the club’s headquarters and to receive what he described as a magnificent contribution to much-needed improvements to the club’s kitchen area.

Steven said: “I am grateful to the Freemasons of West Lancashire for their kind and generous support. The club provides an important resource for local boys and girls and this grant will help us to improve the facilities we can offer.”
