England women champion the grass roots

After the early departure of disaffected chairman Derek Mapp, Sport England have now lost their head of national sport, Lisa Wainwright, who has been appointed CEO of Volleyball England. But the beleaguered quango soldier on, and continue to do decent work at the grass roots with their Sporting Champions scheme.
