Shopping and leisure facilities

The Hub, Londis shop and cafe bar (Vimy and Helles Barracks)

The camp’s shops stock a wide range of everyday items including food, drinks, toiletries, newspapers and magazines – more or less everything a recruit is likely to need.

The Hub café bar is comfortably equipped with both sofa and stool/table areas, and sells a variety of snacks and beverages. It also has leisure areas with electronic games as well as more traditional activities including pool, snooker and darts.

Additionally, there are Internet suites (for a small charge) and large-screen TVs which show a variety of sports and music/entertainment channels.

The Beharry Centre

This dining and recreation facility opened in January 2007 and can deliver up to 2,000 meals an hour!

Recruits are encouraged to attend all meals, as a high calorific intake and a balanced/healthy diet during training are very important in providing the body fuel needed for the demands of infantry training.

Recruits pay for their meals direct from their salary and enjoy an extensive and varied menu which would not be out of place in a major hotel or restaurant chain.

Vickery Club

The Vickery Club is a non-alcoholic drop-in centre for recruits and is the main welfare facility at ITC Catterick.

The Club is organised by staff from the Salvation Army who are assisted by the Army Welfare Service and the Women’s Royal Voluntary Service, both of which also provide support for recruits and have a great deal of experience with all manner of problems. Most recruits experience some form of homesickness and the staff are on hand to help them come to terms with being away from home.

The Club also plays host to:

  • the Scripture Reader, who provides friendship and counselling to support recruits' spiritual and moral welfare
  • a military shop which sells a selection of associated regimental insignia, badges, belts and memorabilia
