Victoria House, Greaves Street, has had a colourful history being once used as a snooker hall, council housing offices as well as Cassons Commercial College before closing back in 1999.
The expansion to the landmark building has enable OBPD to continue its successful scheme and the new facilities have created a one-stop community hub providing services for all members of Oldham Community.
Victoria House has new boxing facilites and a state of the art gym as well as a personal development area fitted with new computers that are available to everyone.
Victoria House provides the following to the local Oldham community:
Ricky Hatton, the former two time World Champion said:
“This project has my full support because not only is it providing the people of Oldham with state of the art fitness and learning facilities but it is also breathing new life into a building that has been empty for nearly 20 years.”
“As a gym owner I know what a boost schemes like this can give to an area as they provide opportunities for the whole community to take advantage of.”
“I would like to congratulate Eric and his team for the good work they are already doing in Oldham and would urge the local community, organisations and businesses to get behind their efforts so that they can get their plans for Victoria House up and running.”
