My London Summer of Sport initiative supported 6 events in the Borough of Sutton in 2006 as well as many more across London and I hope that we will receive further applications from Sutton council and community and voluntary organisations for this year's programme. Sutton have also established a successful Sutton 2012 forum and set up 5 sub-groups. One of these sub-groups is chaired by a local head teacher and advises on the borough's strategy in relation to education and the Games. Similarly a Sport and Physical Activity sub-group is also in place.
