London Youth Games

Can I congratulate the success of Merton's youth at the London Youth Games. The squash team came out top and we won a fair play award which resulted in the presentation of a sword to the mayor. With the mayor showing it at council, it is probably a good weapon for calling councillors to order.

With 2012 only a few years away, it is important that we encourage our youth as I believe sport and competitive sport is essential to our success. At 2012 hopefully it will be a record medal haul for team GB, as the opportunity to perform on home soil should be a tremendous motivation for many young people involved in sport.
