The visit coincided with a meeting to discuss what should be included in a future school and community sport strategy.Over 1,000 children took part in the games organised by the County Sports Partnership, the UEA Sportspark and School Sport Partnerships across Norfolk.
Clive met with Phil Steele (Director of Sport, UEA Sportspark), Laurie Hull (Active Norfolk), Jon Osborne (Norwich School Sports Partnership) and Rob McCombe (West Norwich & Dereham School Sports Partnership) to discuss how they work together to provide sport and physical activity across Norfolk.
A local TV crew were also in attendance to report on the games. Clive spoke with them about the purpose of his visit and concerns about the current delivery of the Olympic Legacy. To view their interview with Clive click here.
Following the visit Clive held a meeting at Carrow Road hosted by Norwich City Community Sports Foundation to discuss what should be in a future school and community sports strategy. This was attended by a number of people working across different levels of sport in Norfolk.
Commenting after the visit, Clive said:
“I am extremely grateful to the Sportspark, Active Norfolk and the School Sports Partnerships for taking the time to show me the first rate facilities on offer at the University of East Anglia.
The hard work by multiple organisations to put on this fantastic week of events for school children across Norfolk must be commended.
The UEA Sportspark is an excellent example of how universities can open up their facilities to the wider community.”
