We also provides conference facilities with full outdoor land and water-based activities complimented by 70 bed accommodation with catering and self-catering options, plus parking for 40 cars.
LOAI is a Registered Charity and Company Limited by Guarantee. It was established in 1991 by a partnership of Lancashire County Council, The Sports Council and various local organisations and trusts. It was one of several similar initiatives and had start-up funding for a three-year period.
The Charitable purposes of the organisation relate to encouraging the positive use of the outdoors by all sectors of the community. In practice, this means offering opportunities for participation and access to facilities together with provision of training, advice and support.
Since the original start-up funding the LOAI has been predominately self-funding, using a business model that uses cross subsidy, with the more profitable activities allowing the provision of lower cost support for those aspects of the programme that need it. LOAI became part of the University of Bolton Group, which includes UoB, Bolton College, Bolton UTC and Alliance Learning in April 2019

Astley Bridge Bowling Green Company Ltd

The Bowling Club was founded in 1895 since then it has been serving as an important social community hub providing not just the enjoyable, competitive sport of Green Bowling but being a life line for those who would normally be housebound or on their own.
‘Loneliness and social isolation can affect everyone but older people are particularly vulnerable after the loss of friends and family, reduced mobility or limited income.
It is estimated that among those aged over 65, between 5 and 16 per cent report loneliness and 12 per cent feel isolated. These figures are likely to increase due to demographic developments including family dispersal and the ageing of the population. For example, the number of people aged more than 80 is expected to treble in the next 20 years, while those aged over 90 will double.’*
