The Local Leaders programme was launched around a year ago to encourage people from across the country to spread the Olympic spirit in their communities. The thousands already signed up will be organising BBQs, street parties and visits to big screens with local music, entertainment and mini-games for children.
Even if it’s from the comfort of their garden chair people across the UK are creating their own Olympic atmosphere at home. And it’s not too late to join the party. You can find recipes, posters, games ideas and the all important sporting schedule at london2012.com/supersaturday
