The Olympic Games have inspired the borough’s young people, says Ed.
He was speaking after visiting a display at Bentley Library – about the games in Rio – made by children from several primary schools.
Ed was shown around the exhibition by Bentley councillor Charlie Hogarth.
Ed said: “The Olympic Games are fantastic, and Team GB’s performance in Rio was exceptional. It’s clear from seeing the excellent work produced by these children just how much the event excited and impressed them, and I feel inspired by that.”
The displays were put together by a number of schools – Bentley New Village Primary, Bentley High Street Primary, Arksey Primary, Toll Bar Primary, Kirkby Avenue Primary, Castle Hills Primary, Sunnyfields Primary and Our Lady Of Perpetual Help Catholic Primary.
Cllr Hogarth said: “The Olympic Games showcase the talent and determination of athletes from across the UK – I’m confident, having seen how much the games mean to children here, we could see future Olympic champions from Doncaster.”
