2016 Olympics bid

With all the fuss about the 2012 Olympics in East London Cheam's bid to host the 2016 Olympics may have slipped beneath your radar. From the website it seems to be much better planned and thought out than the 2012 Olympics and has the map of the proposed transport links, which include expansion of the tramlink through Worcester Park with stops at Sparrow Farm, The Gamecock and Ruxley.

As part of the plan Worcester Park is due to get its own stadium to host the Olympic cricket matches which considering our recent good showing in the ECB Indoor Championship seems only fair.

The list of sports is extensive with the usual sports such as Archery to be held in Nonsuch Park but with the introduction of such typically English sports as Aunt Sally, Croquet, Darts, International Roll-up Smoking, Pimms Tennis (Demonstration sport), Pooh sticks, Punting and Stoolball.

I'd encourage you to endorse the bid by putting their logo with Cheam's most famous resident on your website or blog (if you have one).

"Scariest person of the week" award goes to the person who read every single blog entry I've ever written (plus comments) over a 6 hour period yesterday. Congratulations......... I think.............
