Meridian and the Olympics

Greenwich council's work to secure long-term benefits from the 2012 Games has helped them to achieve Beacon status in the Government’s prestigious best-practice scheme for local councils. In the first-ever national Beacon award for Olympic and Paralympic legacy, Greenwich was one of just five councils in England to receive the award.

Against this backdrop Sam Laurie, our PE and Sports Co-ordinator, was invited to the O2 to talk to 140 national and international delegates about Meridian's involvement in the annual Sportathon event. The conference was designed to share good practice and illustrate how sport lends itself to the Olympic legacy.
