Sports Association

The response to a new sports association for Hethersett and Great and Little Melton has been excellent. 

Active Norfolk’s sports co-ordinator for Hethersett, Peter Steward, said he had “been surprised and delighted” by the response from sports clubs and local people. 

“There has been a tremendous enthusiasm for the idea and it looks like virtually every sports club in the three villages will be represented at our inaugural meeting in February. 

“There is a great willingness from clubs and individuals to work together to enhance sport in the area. What we are trying to achieve doesn’t stop at sport as we also want to promote fitness and awareness of environmental issues,” Peter Steward said. 

The association will bring together clubs, environmental groups and fitness and sports professionals with the idea of promoting fitness and club membership, bringing a higher profile for sport and overseeing an entry into the South Norfolk Games in June. 

“We will also be lobbying for improved facilities and seeing how we can all work together for the mutual benefit of all. In her Christmas speech, the Queen outlined the importance of exercise and sport for the well being of both individuals and the country and we want to harness the tremendous energy and enthusiasm that exists in Hethersett and the Meltons,” Peter Steward said. 

The inaugural meeting of Hethersett and The Meltons Sports Association (HaMSA) will take place on February 28th at Park Farm Hotel, Hethersett, at 7.30 p.m. Any sporting groups not already contacted who would like to attend the meeting can contact Peter Steward on 01603 811052 or by e-mail by clicking here.
