Fantastic News for Fleetwood Gym ABC revealed in Blackpool Gazette Article

Take a peek inside as former Lancashire bingo hall and cinema is transformed into gym and community hub

A historic building has been saved in Fleetwood as a former cinema and bingo hall is being transformed into a state-of-the-art gym and community hub.

The Old Victoria Building, on Poulton Road, was for decades the home of Barney’s Bingo and, before that, the Victoria Cinema but in 2010 it fell into disuse and its condition began to deteriorate.

Around a decade ago the imposing art deco building was bought by Fleetwood-based dredging company Wyre Marine.

Renovation work has been taking place to restore the building and now an ambitious scheme to create a modern new gym, along with storage units and a community hub, is almost finished.

The plans were approved by Wyre planners before work, amounting to a “considerable investment” got underway.

Aside from undertaking a massive restoration project to protect the building, many of its original features have been retained, preserving one of Fleetwood’s historic buildings.

Darren Greenwood, of Wyre Marine, said: “Renovations on the Old Victoria Building are nearing completion, and we are moving into the final stages.

“On the ground floor, there is an accessible fitness facility tenanted by Elle Greenwood Boxing and Fitness.   This gym will be dedicated to providing fitness opportunities for people of all levels and abilities, with a focus on those with special educational needs.

“Additionally, the ground floor will house 19 storage units, each measuring 21ft square.

“The rent from these units will help subsidise the rent for the club upstairs, ensuring it can continue to serve as a community hub.”

He added: “In the main building we have worked diligently and invested significantly to create a modern building that meets all the needs of our main tenant, Fleetwood Gym Amateur Boxing Club.  In return, Fleetwood Gym ABC will be able to use the space and make it available for the entire community by promoting fitness and well-being, especially for young people, in a safe and inclusive environment. 

The club will also make the space available to other community groups to help raise funds and support their charitable efforts.”

FGABC Comment: We will publish more news about this fantastic opportunity for the Club as soon as we can!!  But in the mean time, we are extremely proud and grateful to Darren and his team at Wyre Marine for providing us with this opportunity.  The new venue will help us continue our mission to promote physical and mental health within our community and further our aims in being recognised as a leading amateur boxing facility in the Northwest region.

Two more Fleetwood Gym Boxers selected for Northwest Region 

Congratulations to Tom Cardwell & Oliver Sproston who will both be flying out on the 24th May with the Northwest Region Male Boxing squad  to compete against the Leinster Squad in Ireland.  Good luck lads!

Thank you for a fantastic event

On May 4th Fleetwood Gym ABC presented our last home show of the season at the Norbreck Castle Hotel Ballroom and it was one of our best yet!

Two of our boxers, Henry Abram and Jack Michael, both completed their final skill bouts and are now eligible to compete in open bouts next time out.  In addition, the Show included a further fifteen scoring contests, in which we had thirteen of our own Fleetwood Gym boxers perform in front of a very supportive crowd.   Everyone gave it their all and did themselves and their clubs proud.  Congratulations to all boxers, home and away, for putting on a brilliant performance. 

Fight of the night goes to Bex Stead vs Vaneeza Muhammad.   A back and forth affair which had the crowd on their feet throughout the whole fight. Bex just edging the win by split decision.

As always, none of these events can take place without the help of a supportive organisational team so thanks must go out to the match officials and everyone who gave up their time to ensure the show ran smoothly.   Thanks also to our sponsors and finally everyone who attended on the night to support the boxers.

Fleetwood Gym ABC Home Show - 24 Feb 2024 -Norbreck Castle Hotel

What a night! What a team!

Thank you to all boxers, both home and away, for putting on a great show at the Norbreck Castle Ballroom on Saturday (24th Feb 2024).  Win or learn, you were all amazing.

Thanks also to our brilliant support team for ensuring the smooth running of the show on the night (and for staying behind to help clear up - much appreciated by the hotel management).  We can't put on these shows without you!

Huge thanks also to all the match officials who give up their time to ensure the boxing meets our governing body's regulatory standards, and in particular to the Boxing Supervisor on the night, Mr Alvin Finch who spent his birthday with us in order to officiate and help out.  Thanks Alvin.

Last but not least, thank you to all the families, friends and amateur boxing fans who came along to give their support.  We hope you had a great time and we look forward to welcoming you again at our next home show event. 

Keep your eyes and ears open for news of that - it's going to be a big one!
