Following the success of last year's Oswestry Community Games in the park with around 1000 people in attendance, I am delighted that Oswestry Town Council /Cae Glas Charity have again given us permission to stage another  Community Games event on Sunday 25th September which this year will run from 11am - 3.45pm. Last year, taking part we had around 40 organisations delivering a huge variety of sports and cultural activities including "Have a Go" sessions. Amy Hughes - 53 marathon in 53 days our local lady was our Guest of Honour.

This year, we aim to grow the event with more sports on display providing Have a Go sessions, as well as cultural activities to make it an even better community and family FUN event. It is also an opportunity for clubs to lift themselves up from their location, and show themselves off in the best light in the town centre, and hopefully attract new members.  Please note a club would be responsible for overseeing its own activities on the day.  We also have an exciting Guest of Honour lined up for the day in Mark Fosbrook Wheelchair Basketball who is hoping to be selected for Rio.
Most of the clubs that took part last year have already signed up to take part this year, so please ignore this email if you are one of those, which reflects I think the success of last year's Community Games. Given that space was getting tight last year in the park with so many activities taking place, it may not be possible to fit everyone in, but we will do our best.
if your club is interested in being part of this event,    I would obviously be very pleased to hear from you asap, but please no later than Monday 18th April. 

Replies please to or if you want more information, please ring me on my mobile 07964 615858 and leave a message.

Many thanks
