Hertfordshire Year of Culture 2020 - Cultural Olympiad

posted 16 Dec 2019, 00:46 by Pirton Parish Clerk

Next July has been designated as Cultural Olympiad month - as part of the Hertfordshire Year of Culture 2020 - and as part of that programme, the Herts Sports and Physical Activity Partnership (HSP) is seeking to bring back together individuals and groups with a connection to Hertfordshire that were involved in the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

On Saturday 18 July 2020, HSP – together with Sports Development Officers from Hertfordshire’s 10 district and borough councils – will be staging a Festival of Sport at the University of Hertfordshire Sports Village to mark the start of the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The centrepiece of that event will be a lunch for participants, coaches, Games Makers, Officials and Torch Bearers that were involved in the London 2012 programme, to celebrate their involvement and achievements; to track their respective journeys over the intervening 8 years; and to reflect on how the 2012 Games used sport to unite the nation, and to portray the UK in a very favourable light on the world stage.

The Partnership has enlisted the support of Hertfordshire’s 2012 Olympic Ambassador, John Fuller – a Games Maker himself – to help coordinate the programme and in announcing the initiative.

Anyone involved in any way in the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games programme and who might be interested in being invited to the Spirit of 2012 lunch, should contact Kelly Fagan at k.fagan@herts.ac.uk.

The Parish Council is endeavouring to engage constructively with Cala Homes over a number of issues in order to improve the site for residents and the Pirton community.  These acts of vandalism must cease!
