Two thirds of UK children are ‘insuffi ciently active’


More than two thirds of children in Britain fall below recommended lev- els of fi tness for their age group, according to research by youth activ- ity provider Fit For Sport.

Meanwhile, 24 per cent fell signifi - cantly below recommended levels, indicating a “cause for concern”. The fi ndings of the Challenging

The Bucks are hoping to establish a 60,000sq ft “live entertainment block” – anchored by a 17,000-seat indoor arena – to rejuvenate the city’s Park East cor- ridor. The total cost of the project is expected to reach US$1bn (€942m, £682m). Speaking at a press confer- ence yesterday (9 April), Bucks president Peter Feigin said the vision is to create an arena designed for maximum fl exibility and


year-round use – supported by a dynamic entertainment district. “We’re not just trying to build a new home for the Milwaukee Bucks, but create a 365-day attraction for Wisconsin resi- dents that will help revitalize downtown Milwaukee,” Feigin said.


The design team for the project is lead


by Populous and includes a group of prom- inent global, national and local architects – including HNTB and Eppstein Uhen. Populous’ design for the arena


evokes Wisconsin’s natural beauty and Milwaukee’s rich heritage of industry. Read more: http://lei.sr?a=s2e6H
