The Coalition Government has announced a £150 million boost for school sports nationally from September. Every state primary school in the Wokingham Borough will receive funding for sports in 2013/14 and 2014/15.
Wokingham Borough’s schools will receive more than £400,000 in funding.
Commenting Liberal Democrat Cllr Kay Gilder (South Lake ward) said: “This money means children in Wokingham Borough will have more opportunities to take part in sport in primary schools.
Sport can help children to build confidence, understand teamwork and, above all, keep healthy. Liberal Democrats are determined to make sure we take advantage of the enthusiasm we saw during the Olympics last year.
