Festival of Sport Comes to an End on Weymouth Beach

Festival Of Sport Weymouth

11:52am 5th August 2013

If you'e been to Weymouth recently you'll have noticed the crowds on the beach taking part in the Festival of Sport.

The ten-day programme of events will end on Monday (5th August), but has so far been a great success according to Nick Moran from the Holiday Park Haven Littlesea who help sponsor the activities.

Wessex FM spoke to Nick who told us, "It's a community funded project so we like to see lots of events on the beach to bring more tourists, and add value to their experience when they come down to Weymouth for a holiday. There's 2,500 kids took part in activities on the beach over the weekend, free of charge, which is fantastic."

Borough Councillor Ian Bruce wanted to encourage more businesses to sponsor the events, "If we can get more and more sponsors, and if any companies out there who'd like the same exposure that Littlesea holiday homes get, please come and talk to us. We'd be pleased to give you the economic exposure and you can help us pay for all the things visitors get when they come to Weymouth and Portland."
