A SPORTS summit next week in Moray has attracted a strong response.
Moray MSP Richard Lochhead is behind the meeting at Borough Briggs, home of Elgin City, on Monday night (October 1).
He is urging anyone else with an interest to contact his office by Friday if they would like to attend.
The office can be contacted on 01343 551111 or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
"I am delighted at the level of interest being shown by sports clubs, individuals and other organisations throughout Moray," said Mr Lochhead.
"This is a great opportunity to get people’s thoughts and ideas into the open, to understand where the various public agencies are currently at, and to identify what sports facilities we need to see in Moray in the coming years."
The meeting comes as a campaign by parents and young athletes to see enhanced facilities gathers momentum.
Moray TRACK (Training, Running and Athletics for the Community and the Kids) are looking for radical changes to athletics facilities, particularly those at Morriston Playing Fields in Elgin.
‘The Scot’ recently highlighted the plight of promising young athletes who have to travel miles to find decent training facilities.
The group was formed on the back of renewed calls for a new Moray-based regional sports facility, estimated to cost £6.5 million, which is still on Moray Council’s agenda but has not secured funding.
Moray TRACK will be represented at the seminar on Monday evening.
