Jonathan Edwards and Wenlock have certainly been busy, here they are admiring the artwork produced by local teenagers in art workshops at the National Portrait Gallery as part of Open Weekend 2011.
The London 2012 Beach Volleyball venue received a special delivery this week as the first trucks of sand were delivered to Horse Guards Parade in St James's Park. They arrived ahead of the London Prepares Series test event, the Visa FIVB Beach Volleyball International. The first lorry of sand, which is high quality Redhill 28 sand, was delivered today from a quarry in Godstone, Surrey. Following the event, which takes place on 9-14 August, the sand will be reused by Volleyball England, the national governing body, at their training venues around the UK.
