Dignitaries and officials, including The High Sheriff of Cheshire and Council Cabinet Members came out to support the Cheshire & Warrington School Games this July.
All were keen to show their support for schools sport and spread the message of the importance of physical activity for young people. With less than 30% of young people achieving the minimum guidelines for daily physical activity it is now critical that we see drastic changes to the culture and environments young people live in to positively impact the health and wellbeing of the next generation.
Councillor Maureen McLaughlin, Executive Board Member for Public Health and Wellbeing said "It was a pleasure to come along and find out more about the work Active Cheshire do, and to witness at first hand the joy and positivity that so many young people are getting from sport, thanks to your support."
Active Cheshire and all the partners involved in the delivery of the School Games hailed the event a great success and thanked the commitment of the the local clubs, groups and schools who have been involved in school sport across the year.
