" We were delighted and honoured to be joined by the Lord Lieutenant and Town Mayor as well as our own Rotary President as we celebrated the end of the 23/24 football season. It was also a great opportunity to highlight the whole " Yes We Can" program and give the Lord Lieutenant a chance to talk to parents/ carers and coaches and learn first hand about the impact of the work taking place to create a centre of excellence for Disability Sport in Leighton Linslade that can and does impact the whole of Bedfordshire"
