Community Games 2019

he recent Oswestry Community Games held in Cae Glas Park, was again well supported although the weather did its best to dampen spirits. The whole ethos of the event is to encourage all people to try various sports and enjoy being active.

There was everything from tennis to archery to try. One of the many highlights of the event was Atlantic Mavericks who brought their amazing rowing boat into the park so the public could view it and talk to the crew. The boat goes out from La Gomera in the Canaries in December in the Talisker Whisky Challenge and the voyage to Antigua is expected to take 45/50 days, and our best wishes go to them.

Di Carrington - Atlantic ladies from Pontesbury who completed the same challenge in 2017/18 was a wonderful guest of honour. She now goes to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in her spare time! The Mayor and Mayoress enjoyed being invited to the event and took part in many of the sports available to try on the day.
