Celebrating just under “1 Year to Go” to the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. We want to hear from residents, sportspeople, community workers, school children, and charities about their connections to the Commonwealth.

Whether it’s a short story, a personal experience, or a link to a local community, we are aiming to find a local link to all 54 Commonwealth countries.

Your connection does not need to be sports related. It could be work-related, or you might have been involved in a charitable or community project in the Commonwealth, maybe your family and friends that live in the Commonwealth will provide you with an interesting story to tell?

Written submissions can be bullet points, stories, quotes or facts and figures, but must be a maximum of 500 words.
