Do you have a passion for sport and physical activity and want to shape the way these can help to improve the lives of people in Northamptonshire? Northamptonshire Sport is currently recruiting Board Members to the Northamptonshire Sport Executive Board to drive the implementation of the new ‘Northamptonshire Framework for Physical Activity and Sport’.
