New Boxing Gym Update

Plans and funding approved by Scarborough Council

The East Side Community Centre funding application for the extension of the centre and new gym for Whitby Boxing Club, has been approved. This is fantastic news for the club and the local community.

The funding will provide another meeting room, a cafe, and a reception area to be built onto the existing centre, along with improvements to the existing building, the outdoor garden area (currently the fenced allotment area) and road entrance to the centre.

The remaining funding needed for building the new venue for Whitby Boxing Club is now available with the successful Town Deal application.  

Project Lead, Sandra Turner was thrilled by the news… “The boxing club success has been nothing short of amazing and a credit to all those who give their time to ensure it continues to grow, the much needed new venue, which will be built at the southern end of the centre, will now enable the club to accommodate membership demand.

There is a lot of work to be done, we are currently working on the project timeframe, plans etc with a view to start on the boxing club in the coming months, we will of course keep you updated, and hopefully as restrictions are lifted on numbers inside we will also hold open days at the centre to show progress as we move along.”

Progress on the new build can be seen here:

The project is expected to be completed by November 2022.
