Margot James has congratulated Dudley Water Sports Centre on securing £50,000 in funding from Sport England's Inspired Facilities fund.
The fund will be used to upgrade the existing changing and showering facilities and provide a classroom for dry land training and education. In addition, it will be used to extend the current facilities to accommodate those people with learning difficulties or disabilities.
Margot said, "I was delighted to hear that Dudley Water Sports Centre was awarded £50,000 in funding from Sport England's Inspired Facilities. Sport and exercise are so important to many local people, and I am thrilled that this funding will allow the Water Sports Centre to upgrade its existing facilities, and to extend those facilities to people with learning difficulties and disabilities. I am also proud that that having won this funding the Centre will now bear the Olympics' Inspire mark, celebrating its commitment to encouraging sports in the area."
