£87,000 of public money will be spent celebrating the Paralympics in Aylesbury Vale this summer.

Events include the Flame Festival at Stoke Mandeville stadium - and putting big screens up around Aylesbury.

One of the main events will be the Paralympic Flame Festival held in Stoke Mandeville in August.

Meanwhile, some of the town's young swimmers begin training as Games Makers today.

Aylesbury & District members were picked to help out poolside during the Paralympic Games including carrying athletes' kit ahead of their races in the new aquatic centre.
