Wigan Youth Zone


Officially open from 8 June, the 3,400-square metre development at Mesnes Field is the latest bespoke facility in a network of North West Youth Zone Projects set up by the OnSide charity. As OnSide’s first youth centre to be largely funded by private sector money, it will provide world-class recreational amenities incorporating sport, music and art studios, a climbing wall, all-weather pitches and improved green public spaces. The scheme is the brainchild of owner and chairman of Wigan Athletic Football Club, Dave Whelan, who has with Martin and Bill Ainscough, donated over half of the £6.5m costs.
