To mark the arrival in London of the IAAF Evaluation Commission for the 2017 IAAF World Athletics Championships, UKA has unveiled top British athlete Jessica Ennis as an official ambassador for London’s bid via a giant projection on to London’s iconic landmark, Tower Bridge.The visit by the Commission, chaired by IAAF Senior Vice-President, Bob Hersh, is a crucial step in the bidding process for London to secure the Athletics World Championships in 2017.“We are pleased and honoured to welcome the IAAF Evaluation Commission to London. In the next two days, our aim is to impress! We will demonstrate not only have we got an excellent technical bid, but that the athletes will be at the heart of everything the championships is about.” said Ed Warner, Chairman of UK Athletics.Jessica Ennis, GB heptathlete and bid ambassador said: “I am excited at the prospect of bringing the IAAF World Athletics Championships to the UK in 2017 and proud to be supporting the London bid as an official ambassador. It’s amazing how many athletes have got behind the London 2017 bid already; it’s where we want to compete.“Great Britain has such a strong history of supporting athletics and our fans are the most passionate and knowledgeable in the world. My fondest memories have come at the World Championships and I would love for athletes from all over the globe to have the same opportunity in London’s fantastic Olympic Stadium in 2017.”The first step for the Commission will be a meeting with Lord Sebastian Coe, Hugh Robertson, Boris Johnson and Baroness Margaret Ford to receive legal guarantees on being able to host the Championships in the Olympic Stadium.The bid committee, comprising expertise from UKA, UK Sport, British Government, the Mayor’s office and London and Partners, will then present the technical bid for the Championships. This will include London’s programme and plans for technical organisation, transport, security, medical facilities, marketing and communications. The Commission will also visit a number of hotels and venues as well as touring the Olympic Stadium.Ed Warner added: “Our bid is strong and has the wholehearted support and involvement of the Government and the Mayor of London. We have the Olympic Stadium, the passionate fans who will pack each and every session of a World Championships and the commercial track record to deliver a sustainable long term legacy for our sport on a global level. We have one clear objective – to have one of the world’s greatest sporting events held in one of the world’s greatest cities.“The image of Jessica, one of our great athletes, projected onto one of London’s most iconic buildings sent shivers down my spine. It provides a great welcome to the Evaluation Commission and shows just how big athletics is in London – literally.”Following its visit to the Candidate Cities, the Evaluation Commission will deliver its report to the IAAF Council, and following each city’s final presentation to the Council at their meeting in Monaco on Friday 11 November 2011, the successful bidder will be announced.A successful London 2017 bid would see the world’s greatest athletes returning to the Olympic Stadium and deliver a real legacy from London 2012 by bringing one of the biggest sporting events to the capital.The London 2017 bid has been put together by UK Athletics, DCMS, the Mayor of London, London & Partners and UK Sport.
Record crowds attend Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage FestivalSeptember 28th, 2011shropshirelive.comThis year’ss Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Festival, held on 24th September 2011, has been branded a huge success by the event organisers, with record crowds of approximately nine thousand people across the day attending the celebrations.This year’s event was of special significance as the Ironbridge Gorge is celebrating 25 years since it was designated as one of the UK’s first World Heritage Sites, alongside Stonehenge and the Giant’s Causeway and 3 other sites. The Festival marked the high point of a year-long calendar of special events, exhibitions and activities put on by the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust.Visitors enjoyed a traffic free Wharfage, the road which runs parallel with the River Severn and browsed a wide range of high quality market stalls selling unusual goods and crafts such as unique items of jewellery, handmade homeware and delicious fine foods. Families were able to take part in art workshops, have their faces painted or even have a ride on a donkey or the fairground.Street performers, such as stilt walking Victorian policemen, historic characters and buskers were especially popular with families, whilst the local and community bands and musicians attracted large and appreciative audiences at the two performance areas.Elsewhere in the Gorge Festival goers were able to hire a bike from the Bicycle Hub and explore a section of Route 45, while at Maws Craft Centre there were fantastic demonstrations including traditional historic crafts and steam engines.Street performers attracted large and appreciative audiencesAs dusk fell the Iron Bridge was transformed into a magical apparition, as the multi coloured floodlights illuminated it in spectacular style. Up on the Gorge side giant images were projected onto the trees whilst other buildings were bathed in coloured light. A huge crowd gathered at the centre of the town to watch a grand firework display that ended the evening.Martin Saxton, Operations Manager at the Ironbridge Gorge Museums and event organiser commented;â€œAfter months of planning and weeks of hard work by so many different people and organisations, it was wonderful to see the crowds turn up and enjoy this great event. We are incredibly grateful to all the hundreds of people who have helped make this event possible, the local residents for all their cooperation and to our sponsors, Capgemini, Ricoh and Eon for all their support. Seeing the Festival enjoyed by so many people has made it all worthwhileâ€.Featured in News, Shropshire News
