Sport England have launched a new £5 million fund to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, that aims to use sport and physical activity to bring communities together and tackle inequalities.

Using money from the National Lottery, the fund will make awards of between £300 and £10,000 to community organisations in support of new projects providing opportunities to become more physically active.  The funds could be used for things such as facility hire and coaching costs, or even small capital improvements.

For more information, please share the link to the Sport England website with your member clubs and associations – https://www.sportengland.org/news/queens-platinum-jubilee-activity-fund-launched.

It is with regret that Merseyside Management Committee have decided to postpone their 2022 AGM because of concerns regarding the rising number of positive Covid cases.  The County does not want to risk the health and safety of any of its members,  They apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause.  It is hoped to reschedule the AGM in late March 2022 and further information will be issued nearer the time.
