Lowton Youth CLub

Revisiting Lowton- Plans for transformation

Members of Award winning judo club are ecstatic after securing their long term future at Lowton Youth and Community Centre.

After outgrowing their previous facility, the club have renovated the sports hall of the centre investing over £10,000 assets including a brand new sprung floor, wall safety cladding an over 90m2 mat area allowing the club to expand further and reach its full potential in the heart of our community.

The build was completed entirely by volunteers and members from the club who worked tirelessly to accomplish a finish professional designers and sports clubs would aspire to. Started by Chairman and Head coach Luke Brown, the 3 year old club has grown dramatically over the past two years, so much so that the club quickly outgrew its previous facility.

Luke explained, “we’re very excited to secure the long term future of the club. It’s been its been a long and arduous process but we persevered and accomplished something we’re all very proud of”.

Mr Luke Brown said, “It’s been a real collective effort from all our board, committee, members and volunteers, it really does show what can be accomplished if the community comes together.” After visiting the club, the energy and positive atmosphere is palpable. It’s clear to see how the club, members and local community are already benefitting from the club’s new permanent home. Indeed many of the members were delighted with the home.

The members of club are now settled into their new venue and are already reaping the benefits,

“It’s been very exciting being part of the development of the new club. It’s been a lot of effort but completely worth it!” said one of the senior members.

The senior members and parents beamed with pride when discussing the new facility and mat area with many full of praise for Coach and Chairman Luke Brown.

“It’s really nice when a group of like minded individuals all come together and work hard to achieve a goal. Luke had a vision and he shared it with all of us and with a little hard work, determination and dedication we reached the finishing line. On behalf of all of us I would like to thank Luke for involving us on his journey, it’s been a pleasure being part of it” explained parent Tony Parr.

After limited use over the past few years, the centre has already become a hub of health and activity with the involvement of Leigh Judo Club. It’s a fantastic achievement for the club who have provided an incredible resource for the whole community of Lowton.
