Cheshire East’s Olympic and Paralympic volunteers are being invited to a meeting to explore ways in which they can get involved with local sports initiatives – using their experience to help create a sporting legacy for local people.
The aim of the Cheshire East Games Maker Legacy Group is to discuss the current opportunities to get involved in sport in Cheshire East , leading up to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014.
A number of the volunteers recently attended the Cheshire East Sports Awards and expressed an interest to the Council in getting involved in sport locally.
The call is now going out to Games Makers that didn’t attend the recent event.
Organisers also want to draw on volunteers’ experiences around how the Borough’s sporting scene can be improved.
Councillor Janet Clowes, Cabinet member in charge of health and adult social care, said: “We are hoping that we can form a strong group of people with similar experiences that can support sport and physical activity in Cheshire East in the future.
“We understand that a lot of the Games Makers already have commitments, but any time they could spare to share their experience and enthusiasm would be greatly appreciated.”
The event at Congleton Town Hall is on Thursday, February 28, and runs between 7pm and 8.30pm.
