Inspiring a generation

What a fantastic 16 days, if we can’t all be Olympians at least we can embrace the Olympic spirit and be the best we can be. Let’s hope it will ‘Inspire a Generation’…

But it’s not all over; we still have the Paralympics to look forward to. Cannock and Trentham are both hosting Paralympics Flame Events on Saturday 25 August as part of the torch relay.

Four flames will be lit inLondon, Belfast, Edinburghand Cardiff and from this, Flame ambassadors will take part of the Flame back to local community celebration events.

A total of 34 communities around the country will be hosting Flame Celebrations over the bank holiday weekend and I am delighted that Staffordshire will be hosting two of them.

Both events are sure to be a great way of getting into the spirit of the games and I wouldencourage those eligible groups to attend.

And if that’s not enough, I want to encourage everyone to ‘Join In’ at your local sports club, Cannock hosted celebrations over the weekend with Team GB Olympians and loads of ways to get involved in sports.
