Grants available to Olympic party planners

Grants of up to £250 are available to sports fans who want to mark the Olympic and Paralympics in style.

Get Berkshire Active will also be running workshops from May to July for organisers of events in their community - including diamond jubilee celebrations.

Chief executive Mark Lawrie, based at Bisham Abbey National Sport Centre, said: "The Olympics and Paralympics will be huge and are generating great excitement and anticipation.

"It’s great to think that there will be lots of smaller community events being played out at the same time in village halls, playing fields, leisure centres, faith centres and even local streets."

The grants are on offer along with free t-shirts, bunting and publicity to get the public into celebration mode.

They hope to have at least 25 events organised across Berkshire over the next few months.

The money ultimately comes from the Government's £2m Big Social Action Fund the Government.
