Although it's a small project, the new Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) pitches at White Moss Community Centre have made a huge impact for the centre and the local community.
The Small Works team took just 3 weeks to complete the construction of the pitch for the community youth centre in Blackley, Manchester working closely with sub-contractor Bynre Surfacing.
The project entailed the design and installation of a land drain, which drained into a SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage System), and the construction of a concrete edged permeable tarmac pitch. The whole pitch was surrounded by new mesh fencing and gates which incorporated new basketball posts and goal mouths.
This project was completed to a very challenging programme, from commencement on site to handover was just 15 working days.
The £50'000 funding for the project was secured on the 4th application to the Big lottery Funding for Changing Spaces.
Jonny Biggs, Manager at the community centre said "Big thanks to Crudens and Byrne Surfacing who did the project, they did great job. This games area will enable us to accept more kids and youths as members so keeping more youths off the streets - this is for whole community"
