MP welcomes investment in sport

The Oxford East MP Andrew Smith has welcomed the news that the county is to receive thousands of pounds worth of Olympic funding to improve sports facilities in the region.

It is fantastic news that we have been awarded this money. The pool is a much need facility within the city and to be awarded an Inspired Facilities grant is a great accolade

– Andrew Smith MP, Oxford East, Labour

We are delighted to secure one of the first Inspired Facilities grants, which will help provide a moveable floor to the new pool. This will help provide Oxford with a fantastic facility for use by the community and swimming clubs. We have waited a long time for this facility and after the Town Green application was thrown out last week we are now looking forward to starting work on the site

– Councillor Van Coulter, Board Member for Leisure Service, Oxford City Council, Labour
