ANGLESEY Assembly Member Rhun ap Iorwerth has called for the island to establish its own Sports Hall of Fame to inspire the next generation of aspiring stars in the region.

The Plaid Cymru representative has made a proposal to Isle of Anglesey county council for the new facility to be established, which would contain memorabilia, a list of teams and individuals from the island who have achieved great things in various sporting environments.

A consultation is currently open for members of the public to have their say on the project, with those who want to express their views able to do so by filling in a questionnaire at Wales International Goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams’ Euro 2016 exhibition currently hosted in Oriel Mon.

Mr ap Iorwerth said: “Encouraging physical activity to promote healthy living is vitally important. I’m passionate about this, and my proposal focusses on highlighting the many positive role models we have within our communities here on the island in a way that can inspire future generations.

“Over the years many individuals and teams from Anglesey, or with a strong connection to the island, have achieved sporting success on a national or international level and it is essential that we have somewhere to celebrate those triumphs.

“I propose creating a sporting Hall of Fame, to celebrate and highlight the island’s achievements in sport, providing current and future generations with the inspiration to take steps towards a more active lifestyle.”

The Hall of Fame will be set-up with a view to celebrate the Ynys Mon’s significant successes in the field and inspire the island’s youngsters to undertake more healthy and active lifestyles.
