Sports festival to celebrate Olympics

A TWO-DAY sports festival could be held in the district this June to celebrate the arrival of the Olympic torch.

City councillors will be asked to back a “weekend sports showcase” including cycling, water and beach sports, which could become an annual attraction.

Should funding be approved, this could take place on June 23 and 24, the same weekend as the Olympic flame will be carried through Morecambe, Lancaster, Hest Bank and Bolton-le-Sands.
