West Gorton Youth Centre mural

An interesting mural or two at West Gorton Youth Centre. Young parents (aged up to 19) meet here on Tuesdays,  with free lunch, a creche and baby massage. There are many community groups based here, and footballer Fabrice Muamba has also been involved with the youth groups. He was the Bolton Wanderers footballer brought back to life after collapsing on the pitch in an FA Cup match in 2012.

The West Gorton Doorstep Sport Club was set up by a community partnership between a housing provider and the over 50’s Tenants and Residents Association to promote community engagement and help tackle antisocial behaviour in the area. With funding from national charity StreetGames the club was launched in August 2013 and now offers ‘doorstep’ sports activities to young people aged between 11 and 16 every Friday afternoon.

Taking part in Monday Murals.


  1. A very worthy partnership Chrissy and a suitably colourful clubhouse.

  2. that's great that they have a place to meet with other young parents!

  3. Fine, artistic combination here.

  4. An important service to the local community. Maybe you'll be able to get closer another time for close-ups. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
