Organisers say the week-long festival of sport, launched yesterday, is set to be bigger than ever before and will be the most inclusive in the history of the competition for Norfolk.

Jo Thompson, School Games project officer from Active Norfolk said: 'We're trying really hard to make the opportunities available through the Norfolk School Games appeal to loads more youngsters than ever before.

'The aim is to get the message across that physical activity can be done in many ways and school sports can provide the chance to try something new to everyone.'

The Norfolk Winter School Games Week will see more than 2,200 young people from schools across the county take part in 12 events.
