A charity and outdoor adventure centre near Penryn is unveiling plans for a new development project which will help it continue its work with challenged young people in Cornwall.

BF Adventure, formerly known as the Bishop’s Forum, has drawn up plans for urgently needed new facilities at its Goodygrane site to maintain its work supporting the community, particularly children and young people from disaffected backgrounds.

The development, called the BF Adventure Project, will offer indoor learning space, wet weather cover for up to 11 groups, accommodation and much improved facilities to further increase the quality of the services on offer.

The project is set to go to Cornwall Council’s planning department in May. BF Adventure is carrying out public consultations on Tuesday, April 27 at Treverva Village Hall and on Wednesday, April 28 at Mabe Village Hall, both between 6pm and 7.30pm.

The centre will also be holding an open day on May 15, 12pm to 2pm to display the plans and gain feedback from local residents.


BF Adventure’s chief executive, Tony Hogg said: “We urgently need to improve our facilities to become less weather dependent and more sustainable as an organisation.

“With more than 8000 people passing through our gates each year, the winter months can be particularly challenging for us.

“The BF adventure project will benefit the whole community from children and young people that have been excluded from school to long term unemployed adults and people with disabilities, as well as customers that just come for a fun day out.”
