Citizen editor: Olympic legacy up and running at Gloucester's athletics track opened by Princess Anne
IF ever there was an example of the Olympic legacy in action it was the opening of Blackbridge athletics track yesterday by Princess Anne.
The royal visit was the icing on the cake for Gloucester Athletics Club which has been working tirelessly with the sports community, civic leaders and others to get this revamp off the ground.
It has taken blood, sweat, tears and indeed a good dollop of cash. But the work doesn't stop here as there are many more plans in the pipeline to truly turn this site into a centre for sporting excellence.
And the £30,000 donated by Barnwood based EDF Energy, 2012 officially handed over yesterday will go someway to help.

NEWS Ecclesiastical has pulled out of its move to Gloucester Docks is more than a little disconcerting.
Chris Oldershaw said that he hopes the firm will still be able to relocate to Southgate Moorings when the economic climate picks up and this is a sentiment we echo.
It is such a significant employer that it is vital it continues to be part of Gloucester's economy and has the support to be able to grow the business within the city.
WHEN it comes to championing Gloucestershire's schools, Jackie Hall has been banging the drum as loud as she could.
Never backward in coming forward, Jackie has been a passionate and proud councillor both for her ward and her cabinet position.
There are not many like her and her voice and her enthusiasm for local government and its role in the community will be missed. Thanks for your many years of service to Gloucestershire Jackie and we wish you all the best.
