The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games was in every way the 'spectacle' that we all hoped for. It clearly demonstrated what could be achieved through the inspiration and power of sport, using it as a catalyst for positive change and inspiration both at home and abroad.
Suffolk was quick and enthusiastic to recognise the opportunity the Games presented and made significant efforts to ensure that the county benefited from the biggest sporting event in the world.
Becoming the most active county
Most Active County was launched in February 2012 and is Suffolk’s key legacy programme from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The long-term ambition is for Suffolk to become the most active county in England.
Most Active County works with local and national partners to create, promote and commission physical activity opportunities that support healthy lifestyles to flourish in Suffolk. It focuses on bringing added value to the good work that many organisations across the county do to engage people in physical activity.
