A POPULAR boxing club which built its foundations in the heart of a South Tyneside community has finally returned home.

For the past two years, Horsley Hill Boxing Club has been running out of a temporary base at Brinkburn Community Centre, in McAnany Avenue, South Shields.

The club had been forced to relocate while work to build a new community hub on the site of the former Horsley Hill Community Centre, in Marsden Road, was carried out.
