More Sporting Success

Hethersett and the Meltons Sports Association celebrated more sporting success at its latest meeting at Park Farm Hotel. 

Members heard of successes over the past five months in the fields of sport, health and fitness including the first ever Hethersett 30/60 cycle ride which attracted 300 riders and which will be held again in 2013 and the new social running club set-up in association with Active Norfolk which has regularly been attracting over 30 members. 

The special pledge to fitness event in January had seen over 130 people pledge to improve their individual fitness levels and these included Norwich City player Andrew Surman who has already been successful in his pledge to help keep the Canaries in the Premier Division. 

The association also looked forward to a hectic few months between now and its next meeting on 10th September. This will include the Hethersett Open Weekend from June 22nd to 24th, the visit of the Olympic Flame to the village on July 5th in recognition of its outstanding work over the past three years to promote the London 2012 Olympic games, a come and try sports event for all ages on the Memorial Playing Field on May 30th from 6 to 9 p.m and an entry into the South Norfolk Village Games at Framingham Earl on June 10th

The meeting also heard about work being undertaken to improve facilities on the Memorial Playing Field, a new group being set up to look at the best use of green spaces in Hethersett and the coming Jubilee Fair on the Memorial Field on June 3rd

The association is planning to make 2013 the year for improving sports facilities in Hethersett and also encouraging local people to walk and cycle rather than use vehicles. 

“The sports association continues to go from strength to strength and we are looking forward to the rest of the year being as busy and successful as the last few months,” said chairman Peter Steward. 

The association is open to clubs and individuals with an interest in sport, fitness, well being and the environment, whether in a professional or voluntary capacity. More information is available on a new web site which is accessible by clicking here.
