As the Commonwealth Games’ visit to Angus grows nearer there has been a wealth of ideas inspired for legacy projects in the area.
According to the Angus Steering Group for the 20th Commonwealth Games these have included exercise tracks along disused railway lines, inter-town contests and a beacon trail to mark the Queen’s Baton Relay among others.
The visit of Commonwealth sharpshooters to Barry Buddon next year as part of Glasgow 2014 has highlighted the enthusiasm inspired in Angus.
Councillor Jeanette Gaul, chair of the Angus Steering Group, said: “It was clear during the workshops we held recently to highlight the funding support that’s available for local projects, that there’s lots of enthusiasm in Angus for the 2014 Games. People are really pleased and proud that the county is going to be part of this fantastic event in Scotland.
“A number of national funds have been set up to support local games related activities; fund projects that create or improve local facilities where we can be more active; and get us involved in physical activities from sport to gardening.
“The Games will provide another fantastic summer of top class sport but they also offer us a great opportunity to get together and get active!”
