Million pound Olympic project brings sport to communities

People in North Lincolnshire are to benefit from a one million pound sport project as part of the Olympic Legacy.

The Door Step Sport project aims to give opportunities to communities to take part in sports at a time and place convenient to them.

Sport England awarded the council more than £540,000 of National Lottery funding to assist with the scheme.

Councillor David Robinson said he hoped the project would encourage people to be more active.

The investment expands on the Street Sport project for young people, which offers diversionary activities in towns and villages in the region.

Councillor David Robinson, said: "This project is great as it encourages people to take part in sport and be more active.

"All communities are different and it is all about finding the right solution for each community that will benefit them the most."
