First, I would like to congratulate everyone who is involved in the Drumwealth games, now in their seventh year, which are a great legacy of the Commonwealth games in 2014.

Being physically active is one of the very best things that we can do for our physical and mental health. The Drumwealth games are testament to what can be achieved through partnerships between schools and clubs, with Drumchapel sport—the Drumchapel community sport hub—active schools and Glasgow Sport working together in partnership. Sport at an early age makes a fun and sustainable contribution to physical activity, which we hope will lead to longer, happier lives.
