Boxing club targets anti-social behavior

A new community boxing club is launching in Chapelford, Warrington this week to help tackle anti-social behaviour (ASB).

The club, which will be run by LiveWire, has been set up thanks to funding from Cheshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, David Keane.

Staff from LiveWire will work with children aged seven to 16 years to encourage them to take part in boxing workouts and fitness drills. The club will also provide a base for young people to exercise, learn new skills and socialise.

It is hoped the activities on offer will help promote community cohesion and deter young people from causing trouble on the streets in west Warrington.
It will run each Friday night between 7pm-9pm from Chapelford Primary School.

This is the second boxing club to be established by LiveWire in Warrington. Westy Boxing Club, which has been running in the south of Warrington since 2015, has helped dramatically reduce the number of ASB call outs in that part of the town.
