TO CELEBRATE the 30 day countdown until the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics, Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council and Tees Valley Leisure are hosting a range of events aimed at inspiring people to get involved in sport and physical activity.

One Big Event on Wednesday, June 27, will bring together all 12 Local Authorities in the North East to celebrate a month to go to the 2012 Games.

Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council's Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Tourism, Councillor Olwyn Peters, said: "The Olympic Games 2012 will be a momentous occasion for our Country and by hosting these regional events everyone is getting into the spirit of sport.

This really is a great way for everyone to have a go at something new or develop their skills in something they already enjoy."

The Sports Development team will be hosting free sporting activities at Kirkleatham Museum between 5pm and 8pm.

Activities will include; archery, orienteering, volleyball, health walks and a visit from a special guest Steve Hall an official Olympic torch bearer for Redcar & Cleveland, who will be offering people the chance to have their picture taken with him and the torch.

There will also be a Zumba Fitness Party at Gisborough Priory from 5pm 8pm, to join the party you will need to book your free place by calling your local leisure centre; Eston 01642 452488, Redcar 01642 480636, Saltburn 01287 623761, Loftus 01287 642020, Guisborough 01287 633311.

Eston Sports Academy will also play host to the touring Saxon Princess Exhibition between 1pm and 6pm on the day.

All we ask is that people offer a small donation on the day to Redcar Gymnastics Club, which is supporting their plans for a new gymnastics facility in Redcar!
