The Ham & High (p16) reports that Camden LBC is submitting a bid for£7 million of lottery money to provide a fitness strategy for its residents. The council wants to attract major sporting events by improving facilities, including four swimming pools and a competition-sized running track on Hampstead Heath. Councillor Gerry Harrison, who sits on the leisure services committee, is quoted:

'The worst aspect of the Inner London Education Authority was that sports were seen as competitive and were downgraded in schools. This is now being reversed. Sport can encourage civic pride and build community morale. It can act as a showcase for the borough at a local, regional and national level.' He also pointed to the importance of improving the health of residents.
