A year on from the London Olympics, it seems that we’re in a golden era for British sport.

Since Team GB athletes racked up a record haul of medals last summer, the success just keeps on coming – with Andy Murray’s triumph at Wimbledon, Chris Froome taking the honours in the Toiur de France and England’s rampant cricketers opening up a big lead in the Ashes just the standout moments of recent weeks.

But sport is for everyone, and we are right in the middle of Replay Week, Dacorum’s Olympic Legacy Festival of Sport 2013.

The festival – organised and promoted by Dacorum Sports Network and Sportspace, with financial support from Dacorum Borough Council and Herts Sports Partnership – aims to bring the Olympic Legacy to life by giving people of all ages and abilities the chance to experience a range of sporting events and activities.

More than 25 different local sports clubs and sports centres are hosting the events – most of which are completely free of charge.

One of the biggest events comes this weekend, when Sportspace in Hemel Hempstead and Berkhamsted will be throwing open their doors and offering activities from noon.

You can join in or find out about a range of different sport and fitness activities in a fun-packed family day of sports activities, special offers and challenges.

All equipment and qualified instructors will be provided for each activity, but if you want to take part you will need suitable clothing and footwear.
