As many of you will now be fully aware, my role as Chair of Sport Wales, was recently terminated, following a suspension of the entire Board previously, and following my extensive Review into the organisation, which was submitted to key stakeholders.
As I expressed in a BBC News interview recently, following my dismissal, I am extremely disappointed that Welsh Government has decided that this is the best course of action, and will be continuing my campaign to help make sport in Wales accessible, fair, transparent and fit for purpose for everyone.
I am also bitterly disappointed to be leaving behind a team of passionate, talented and committed people, who are the lifeblood of Sport Wales, and who continue to be thwarted in the delivery of their duties by a Board and management team who, I believe, do not always have the interests of the general public front of mind.
If anyone reading this thinks that my response to the termination of my appointment is a case of ‘sour grapes’ then I can only say, watch this space and judge for yourselves, what I say and do over the coming weeks and months.
I remain, as always, committed to sport and Wales and will be doing my best to ensure that my voice, and the voice of the many people, clubs and organisations, at grass roots level, who are not receiving the support they so desperately need, and should be entitled to, are heard.
If you would like to read the Review I prepared during my time at Sport Wales, I have made the full report available below, in the public interest, and in the spirit of ensuring freedom of information.
