Oswestry Community Games

On Sunday 12th June, after three years away, Oswestry Community Games more than lived up to organisers’ expectations and a large crowd of people of all ages turned up to enjoy the free activities in Cae Glas Park  provided by diverse local organisations covering sports and dance. The live music was provided by The Mirrors, a local group and was much enjoyed.

The sunshine was a huge bonus, and encouraged around a thousand people of all ages to turn up and get involved.

James Manford – Lead Organiser said “In my first year in this position, it has been quite a learning curve bringing everyone together today! Many thanks go to all our local sponsors – Oswestry Town Council, Oswestry BID, Oswestry Sports Forum, Mary Hignett Bequest Fund and Shropshire Rural Housing Association. Thank you to all the clubs and visitors who have given their time so willingly, to David Osselton from Oswestry Photographic Society for undertaking his role, and to Sue Cameron Head Park keeper and her team for making the park look so attractive. Last but not least my thanks go to my Working group, Stuart Manford, Kelly Clarke and Clive Knight, who worked tirelessly throughout the year to help make this great event happen again”.
