Sports charity picks contractors for three sites

Young people's charity Onside Northwest has appointed Eric Wright Construction and Tolent Construction to build sports facilities in Wigan, Oldham and Harpurhey.

The Youth Zones will cost £3.3m to build and have been funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the North West Development Agency.

The facilities are designed to complement schools and colleges and encourage engagement of young people who face greatest disadvantage, providing positive role models through mentoring and volunteering in order to promote confidence, skills and address barriers to learning and achievement.
