All welcome at the next meeting of the Sports Association which will take place in the Melton Suite at Park Farm Hotel, Hethersett, on Monday 10th September, 2012 at 7.30 p.m.
The association is busy working to promote sport and leisure in Hethersett with a particular emphasis on fitness, well being, health and the environment.
In 2012 the association will be supporting member clubs and individuals and also a number of sporting and leisure activities in Hethersett and the Meltons. This has included the setting up of a social running group for all ages which meets at Hethersett Junior School on Thursday evenings from 7 until 8 p.m.
In 2011 Hethersett and the Meltons won the South Norfolk Village Games and in the county finals were pipped for first place by Downham Market. Despite coming up against towns with much larger populations in the Large Villages/Market Towns section, we were delighted to finish runners-up in the whole of Norfolk. In 2012 we were again crowned South Norfolk champions and will be taking part in the County finals on July 15th.
