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.
– Andrew Smith MP, Oxford East, Labour
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
– Councillor Van Coulter, Board Member for Leisure Service, Oxford City Council, 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
