On Saturday 4 August, everyone is invited to watch all the latest action from the London 2012 Games on Dover’s Big Screen as athletes compete for twenty-five Olympic Golds – the most glittering and exciting day of the Games.
Olympic themed games, activities and performances will bring the Market Square to life from 11am to 4pm. Relax on large, brightly coloured beanbags as you get behind Team GB and watch the live coverage throughout the day. There will also be a Junior and Adult Games Zone in the Roman Garden just off the Market Square and an under-5’s Play Zone with Bouncy Castle.
Dover District Council and Vista Leisure are hosting the free event, along with other voluntary groups and clubs promoting sport and showcasing the latest opportunities of ‘what to do’ and ‘where to go’ to get active and ‘feel alive’!
One such club is the Dover Gymnastics Club, which is gearing up for increased interest following the excitement of the men’s gymnastic team winning a bronze medal earlier this week. Club member Jon Green, who ran in the Olympic Torch Relay two weeks ago, will be at the event from 12 until 2pm inviting people to bring their own cameras and pay £1 to have their picture with the torch, the proceeds of which will go directly into the Club funds.
DDC’s Sport & Leisure Officer Sarah Philpott said: “Having the Olympic & Paralympic Games on home soil I hope will prove to be inspirational for people of all ages and abilities, and the Council website has lots of information about local clubs and activities available”.
