Club up and running

A NEW boxing club is holding its first annual general meeting (AGM) next week.

The Alnwick Amateur Boxing Club event takes place on Thursday evening at Alnwick North Community Centre on Howling Lane. It is open to anyone who wants to find out more about the organisation or is interested in helping to form a much-needed committee – or coming forward as a possible coach/additional volunteer – which will help kick-start the group.

Gary Pattinson, from the town, is behind the club and believes that it will be beneficial for the area, catering for all ages, genders and abilities.

A facility for the community, it would also be open to people wanting to increase their fitness, with scope for boxercise classes.

The club has already attracted support and a number of people expressed their interest at a public meeting last month.

The AGM starts at 6pm.
