Legacy Games day for Watford children keeps London 2012 Olympic Games alive
Watford children were invited to take part in a day of activities designed to deliver the sporting legacy promised by the London 2012 Olympic Games.
One thousand children from local primary schools participated in one of many Legacy Games days organised by Fit for Sport and Everyone Active last Thursday.
Steve Parry, Olympic swimmer and sports personality, hosted a mass warm up at the Watford Leisure Centre Woodside.
The school children enjoyed a variety of sports, activities and team building challenges which aimed to inspire them to lead a healthy lifestyle.
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."
