Let’s Get Active 2012
Let’s Get Active 2012 is highlighting the host of sports and activities on offer in the borough in Olympic year.
Towns and villages across west Norfolk will be marking this momentous year and encouraging more people to enjoy taking part in sports and activities. Highlights include a 1948 Village Torch Trail, taking place over the Diamond Jubilee weekend (2nd – 5th June). Torchbearers on foot and cycle will take the 1948 Olympic torch into 80 villages in the area. The torch will be stopping at Snettisham, Heacham, Hunstanton, Docking, Burnham Market, Harpley, Great Massingham, Narborough, RAF Marham, Stoke Ferry, Methwold, Feltwell, Upwell, Tilney St Lawrence, West Walton, Walpole St Andrew, Terrington St Clement and Clenchwarton where special three-mile sponsored runs, in aid of the Stroke Association and Stroke Unit at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, and other celebrations will be held. These events will give the general public an opportunity to hold and run with the Torch while enabling unique photo opportunities. There will also be a sponsored run at the start of the relay event at Lynnsport 9am on the 2nd June.
