The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games is coming to Warwick District this July, with the District hosting Lawn Bowls and Para Lawn Bowls at Victoria Park Bowling Greens in Royal Leamington Spa and the start and finish of the Road Cycling Races in St Nicholas Park in Warwick.
But how much do you know about the Commonwealth Countries?
Let us take you on a tour of the Commonwealth – we have 54 countries to talk about – some are very well known; some are not so well known, and we want to know whether we have connections to all 54 in our district.
Over the next few months, we are going to share some fun facts and figures about each of the countries in the Commonwealth. When you read about a country, does it prompt your own memory, anecdote, or story? Do you have photos in your attic from trips or projects over the years?
Don’t keep them to yourself! We want to hear all about it. We want your help to connect to every single one of the Commonwealth countries. Let’s see if we can do it together!
Written submissions can be bullet points, stories, quotes or facts and figures, but must be a maximum of 500 words.
