The Brian Kidd Recreational Facility

The Brian Kidd Recreational Facility

On the 9th of May Miles Platting Housing and Grounds team supported an event to honour Manchester City’ Assistant Coach Brian Kidd renaming the St Georges Community Grounds (which Adactus Housing Association manages) to “The Brian Kidd Recreational Facility”.

Brian Kidd grew up on Rome Road opposite the recreational area, attending the local school St Patrick’s Primary School. He has continued to support local Collyhurst community including attending the reopening of the newly refurbished St Georges Community Centre on Bothwell Road.

A reception was held at St Georges Community Centre with a plaque sponsored by Adactus unveiled by Lord Mayor of Manchester Councillor June Hitchen to local residents including saint Patrick Primary School and Saint Patrick’s Former Pupils. This was then followed by a lunch at Saint Patrick’s Hall for Brian’s family, former team mates, alumni and local community leaders.

We will be supporting the local youth organisation YPAC in continuing youth engagement, sports and events in the coming months to make use of this valuable community space.
