Countdown to Olympics

MORE than 20 local sports clubs, societies and venues are joining forces with Lancaster City Council to celebrate the start of the one-year countdown until to the Olympic Games by offering a wide range of activities and taster sessions.

The majority of activities are free and others can be enjoyed at discounted rates.
