“The Community Games are designed to inspire health and happiness through physical activity.

“Visitors will be able to meet different local sports and activity clubs in a fun and friendly environment, have a go, and leave with a medal.

“Supported by local volunteers, our mascot Buddy and bucket loads of smiles, we will do our very best to help the people of Lichfield District have a great community afternoon

“We are delighted to be welcoming the Community Games back to Lichfield.

“The games are the perfect way for people of all ages to have a go at a range of different events and activities, such as rugby, football, various types of dance, boxercise, tennis, tug-of-war, pre-school activities, netball, orienteering and martial arts, to name but a few.

 “With the Commonwealth Games taking place on our doorstep next year, there’s never been a better time to take inspiration and discover new ways to keep fit and active.

“Over the next 12 months we will be looking at how we can use the positive impact of the Commonwealth Games on our region to boost sport, leisure, tourism and business opportunities across Lichfield district.”
