South Norfolk MP Richard Bacon has praised local sports clubs and associations, describing them as the backbone of the community, following an address to Norfolk Gliding Club.

Mr Bacon said: “Dame Kelly Holmes, Michael Vaughan and Jonny Wilkinson all made their first steps into their chosen sport through local clubs”. 


“Local clubs are the backbone of British sport and they deserve our support if they are going to produce the champions of the future”. 


“Norfolk Gliding Club is a perfect example of a growing sports club and I am delighted to continue to support them”. 

Norfolk Gliding Club has around 300 members with a wide range of membership options from a full flying member to an associate. It also offers flights and a wide variety of gliding courses run by fully qualified instructors.

The club is based at Tibenham Airfield, which is the largest glider airfield in the UK and is located within Mr Bacon’s South Norfolk Constituency.
