After three years, the annual Oswestry Community Games is returning and will take place on Sunday 12th June in Cae Glas Park from 11am – 3.45pm.

James Manford is now the lead person for the Oswestry Community Games and is being supported directly by Clive Knight, Kelly Clarke and Stuart Manford, whilst Hazel Davis has stepped down from her key role previously to an advisory capacity.

James said:-

“I was extremely excited to be presented with the opportunity of leading the organising committee for the Oswestry Community Games and I can’t wait to invite the whole community to come back to the heart of the town in Cae Glas Park for fun, action, music and (organised) chaos!

“The date of the Games has been changed from its usual September to June this year in order to make a bid to be a community link to Birmingham’s Commonwealth Games 2022, and we should shortly hear the outcome of our bid.

“The Community Games promises to be yet another successful day in the park, with sport, music and dance from diverse local organisations providing free activities on the day.  The hope is that participants will try out a new activity and take it up after the Community Games.  With fair weather and surely, we deserve it in mid-June, organisers anticipate around 1000 people of all ages in the park.

“Many thanks to Oswestry Sports Forum and Oswestry Town Council for already agreeing to sponsor the Community Games whilst we have several other bids in progress.”
