Mayoral support for active Groomsport weekend

Winners and competitors at
Eddie Skelly Memorial Swim
I added my support to the wide range of sporting events which took place in Groomsport at the weekend on Friday 16, Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 August 2013. 

I started the Half Marathon in Groomsport on Friday 16 August plus the Eddie Skelly Memorial Sea Swim on Saturday 17 August 2013. 

The Groomsport Iron Man also occurred on Sunday 18 August 2013.

With promotion of active living and sport one of my priorities as Mayor I was delighted to support such a strong range of events courageously undertaken by a range of resilient sportsmen and women. 

Whether first or last each person who participated demonstrated outstanding personal success and should be admired. Active living is not about winning but taking part and the vast range of health and social benefits arising.
