On Wednesday 28 July it will be one year to go until the start of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. To mark this milestone a day of fun will be held at Washbourne Fields in Whitnash 10am - 2pm.
Entry to this event is free with opportunities to have a go at some of the Commonwealth Games’ sports such as new age bowls and basketball.
Local people are encouraged to bring their bikes along to this day of activities, where the Whitnash Safer Neighbourhood Team will be on hand to provide QR coded anti-tamper stickers. There will also be ice cream and a range of snacks and drinks for purchase.
Councillor Liam Bartlett, Portfolio Holder for Culture, Tourism and Leisure, said:
“With just one year to go the excitement is starting to build in our district, as we prepare to welcome visitors and competitors from around the world for the Commonwealth Games. This is a great opportunity for the residents of Whitnash, to get a flavour of this once in a generation event, try some of the sports which will be taking place and enjoy a day of family fun for free!”
Next year the district will be hosting the Lawn Bowls and Para Lawn Bowls events which will be taking place on the bowling greens at Victoria Park in Royal Leamington Spa as well as the start and finish of the Road Cycling event which will start and finish at St Nicholas Park in Warwick.
