Celebration of Sport 2013

Home » Newsroom » Celebration of Sport 2013

It is nearly one year on from the start of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games in London, a spectacle that inspired thousands of local Cheshire West and Chester residents.

Sport Cheshire, on behalf of Cheshire West and Chester Council, are leading on the "Celebration of Sport 2013" initiative, which aims to provide residents with the opportunity to get involved in sport and physical activity within their communities and to celebrate the plethora of groups, organisations and individuals that work tirelessly to get more people active.

Cheshire West and Chester Council is keen to ensure that there is a Celebration of Sport event in every area of the borough at some point over the summer and as a result want to work with Councillors and their local communities to support such opportunities.

Funding of £250 per ward area is available to support the delivery of a Celebration of Sport event. These events do not need to be new. They can be existing events such as a village carnival or village show, but that uses the funding to introduce a sporting element to the day and promotes participation for all. They are also keen to work with Borough Councillors to explore the possibility of match funding from their budgets, to increase the funds available per area to £500.

If you would like to host a Celebration of Sport event in Tarvin please contact the Parish Clerk, Mike Hassell by email miketarvinparish@aol.com or telephone 01829 741075
