Halewood Boxing Club to Re-Open
Last night I visited Halewood Youth In Community Centre to meet those involved in the reopening of Halewood Boxing Club. It was great to see so many young people taking part and enjoying themselves.
Halewood Boxing Club previously functioned for over 40 years but has been closed for around 10 years. Thanks to the hard work of Youth Centre Management the club has now reopened and offers boxing classes for all ages on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
I spoke to Centre Leader Mark Nelson and the coaches about their plans to buy new equipment with the help of a Sport England Small Grant. I fully support them in their bid to secure funding.
All the children I spoke to said they had a lot of fun and would definitely go again. It is clear that the club really want to make a difference to the local community by getting kids off the streets and into the youth centre.
