I planned a local route today, although I need to be mindful that I’ll quickly run out of villages within easy riding distance if I keep riding from home!

It was an absolute pleasure to stop at The Nest, which is Norwich City Community Sports Foundation’s site (the old Anglian Windows site near the airport).

I met Emma Fletcher, who is the Senior Fundraising and Events Manager for CSF, and she gave me a guided tour of the facilities. I had no idea quite how many different programmes and projects CSF has on the go, and I’m really keen to go back and get involved in some of them as the year progresses.

The second stage of The Nest is well underway: a purpose-built new facility will house a wide array of changing rooms, multi-use spaces and a separate IT learning space.

I’m really proud to be raising funds for (and awareness of) the CSF’s outstanding work throughout Norfolk; you can find out more about what they do here, and more about The Nest here.
