New £140m fund is announced

A NEW £140m fund to boost sport and fitness through free swimming for over 60s has been announced as part of the Government’s plan to ensure a lasting sports legacy from the 2012 Olympic Games.
The Legacy Action Plan was unveiled last month by Olympics Minister Tessa Jowell, Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Andy Burnham and Secretary of State for Health, Alan Johnson.
Tessa Jowell said: “There is something for everyone in our plans - every part of the country, every section of the population.
“Ten million people stand to benefit from our exciting free swimming plan alone. I hope that this is just the beginning and that by 2012 we can offer free swimming to all."
