Olympic legacy in Oxford

£75,000 of Olympic legacy funding will be spent to improve sports facilities in Oxfordshire. The money is part of the Inspired Facilities Fund which is designed to ensure that the Olympics and Paralympics have a lasting impact outside of London.

One of the first areas to benefit from the scheme is Blackbird Lees. A new competition standard pool will be built with a moveable floor to help those learning to swim. More than 350 community groups across the UK will receive grants.
