Colchester Borough Homes has welcomed back its Box Smart programme, its free boxing initiative for 12-16 year olds.

Following the success and popularity the programme achieved in 2019, Box Smart is back to provide young people in the community with the opportunity to try something new.

Starting on 5 October, locally qualified coaches will be leading the weekly sessions which will run for nine weeks in Greenstead. Participants will be able to learn new skills and build up their confidence in an active, friendly and safe environment.

Colchester Borough Homes Chief Executive, Philip Sullivan said: “I’m delighted that Colchester Borough Homes is once again able to provide a fun and unique opportunity for Colchester’s young residents. Box Smart is part of our work to make a positive impact in our local communities and to provide opportunities that can be accessed by residents.

“The feedback we received in 2019 was very positive and I look forward to seeing how this new group of participants develop over the next few weeks!”
