Sporting legacy move by authority

CHESHIRE East Council has moved to secure a legacy from last year’s Olympic and Paralympics games in London by signing a memorandum of understanding with Sport Cheshire.

The pledge sets out how the organisations will work together to get more people active.

Since 2005, when the bid for London 2012 was won, the number of adults taking part in sport in the UK has increased by 1.57 million.

Studies have shown lack of exercise and obesity causes more deaths than smoking.

Clr Janet Clowes said: “The country came together last summer for the games in London, and it showed what a force for good sport can be.”
