Guernsey's States begin work to create new sports strategy

Guernsey's Committee for Education, Sport and Culture has begun work to create a 'Plan for Sport' for the island.

It wants the views of individuals, clubs, and associations to help shape the new strategy.

The aim of the project is to improve the health and wellbeing of islanders and enhance Guernsey's reputation internationally.

A consultation has been launched to gather opinion around five themes; sport for all, healthy lifestyles, sports events & travel, facilities, and sporting governance.

The committee hopes to publish its strategy by the end of the year, with a view to putting it before the States early in 2019.
