The Government has approved business cases for the Flag Lane Baths Community Hub and Crewe Youth Zone projects which will now receive funding later in the year.

Commenting Mr. Gove said β€œI am passionate about delivering levelling up in communities like Crewe and it is great to see these two projects moving forward. They are the real tangible things that give meaning to levelling up and I know Kieran will continue to push the Government to keep moving forward with the Crewe Town Deal.”

A range of activities are available through Youth Zones

Reacting to the news Dr Kieran Mullan MP commented β€œI campaigned hard for Crewe to get a Town Deal because I knew what a big difference it would make and projects like this are what that looks like in the real world. We all know we need better facilities and things for young people to do in Crewe.

“The team at the boxing club do a phenomenal job and they deserve a facility that matches their ambitions for the young people they support. The Youth Zone is going to make sure our young people not just in Crewe but across the patch, can come and enjoy the kinds of activities we know help them get on in life, stay out of trouble and enjoy themselves.”
