#HomeofSport

With the Rugby World Cup around the corner, VisitEngland are promoting England as the 'Home of Sport'! We are keen for them to feature Wiltshire so we'd like your personal suggestions and pictures about what enjoying sport in England means to you. Your nominations can encompass everything from formalised sport eg. favourite football grounds or village cricket greens, to things like your favourite park to run or cycle through. If your business offers sporting activities you could encourage your customers to nominate you. Please forward all nominations to Flo.
