St John Bosco Regional Youth Centre will transform a derelict piece of land into a 3G multi-purpose sports pitch.
St John Bosco Youth Centre is a long established youth centre operating in Newry City. They strive to provide high quality youth provision by identifying and responding to the needs of young people in the area by offering a range of activities in sport, music, dance, drama, arts and craft and educational programmes.
They will be using their Space & Place grant, “to use sports universal appeal to create a space whereby we can bring together people from different backgrounds to make a key contribution to community development within the Newry area.”
The Newry United Community Sports Project will develop a substantially sized, underused, waste ground next to the existing youth centre and transform it into a multi-use sport and recreational area.
This will provide a safe area for existing youth centre members and the wider community to come together and participate in activities to improve their overall health and well-being.
