Boxing Club Gets New Lease of Life


Lib Dem Cllr. Brendan Glynane and the Delapre FOCUS team have been actively engaged to try and secure a new lease for the Far Cotton Boxing club run by local hero John Daly.

The County Council are now in the process of granting a lease to our boxing club for a term of 21 years at a rent of just £1 per year.

Cllr Brendan Glynane said “this is great news for the Far Cotton Boxing Club, and for John Daly and dedicated team of committee members of the boxing club who have work so hard to keep the club on sure footing. I am happy as the ward councillor to have been able to play my part in helping to insure a knockout deal for the members of the club.

Campaigner Mick Ford added that Far Cotton Boxing club is a real asset to our community and to the country in helping to encourage the next generation of young boxers.”
