A boxing club is set to benefit from a cash investment to renovate dilapidated sports pavilions across the borough.

Harrow Amateur Boxing Club will get a new home at the Croft Pavilion in Pinner thanks to an investment from Harrow Borough Council.

The authority will be spending nearly £930,000 over the next four years revamping sports pavilions across the borough.

The Croft has been unused for 12 years and has twice been put out for tender by the council, but no appropriate bidder came forward.

Harrow Council leader Councillor Susan Hall said: “Not only are we transforming a derelict eyesore into a building that will once again become a vital part of its community, but we are also finding a new home for a popular and thriving club.

“Our sports clubs are real assets - helping residents get fit and healthy, and providing much needed activities for young people - and we want to do everything we can to help them thrive.

“We hope this success story will be repeated at other locations as we bring other sports pavilions back into use.”

Pity that once again the community & culture portfolio holder was not able to comment on this matter within his remit - hope he is well!
