Watford pupils invited to Fit for Sport and Everyone Active games day to keep London 2012 Olympic Games alive
Watford primary school children have been invited to a day of activities designed to deliver the sporting legacy promised by the London 2012 Olympic Games.
One thousand teenagers are expected to participate in one of many Legacy Games days organised by Fit for Sport and Everyone Active on Thursday, October 3.
Steve Parry, Olympic swimmer and sports personality, will be hosting a mass warm up at the Watford Leisure Centre Woodside and the Watford Legacy Games is set to be the second event in the series.
The school children will be able to enjoy a variety of sports, activities and team building challenges which aim to inspire them to lead a healthy lifestyle.
Elected Mayor of Watford, Dorothy Thornhill, is will be in attendance during the day.
Dean Horridge, CEO of Fit For Sport, said: "The Legacy Games aim to bring communities together and bridge the gap between facilities, schools and experts.
"The activity day is designed to complement and support schools’ programmes and our intention is to create a platform on which to build confidence in the children.
"Our experience shows that, with a little effort and commitment, fitness professionals, education specialists and local communities can work together to develop a lasting legacy of sport for children."
