Let the Mini-Games commence
MORE than 330 primary school children from Sherborne and the surrounding area will participate in The Sherborne Area Primary Schools' Mini-Games being organised by Sherborne Town Council.
Held to celebrate the Olympic Games, the Mini-Games will take place on Friday 6th July from 10.30am until 3pm on the Terraces, and it is hoped that a lasting legacy of sportsmanship and healthy competition will be the result of the running, long-jump, football and vortex throwing.
Peter Rhodes, newly elected Mayor of Sherborne said: "When the last Olympic games were held in the UK I was just 10 years old and my father took me to three events – that experience has stayed with me throughout my life and it resulted in a love of sport that has never left me. I wanted to give the children of Sherborne and the surrounding area, a chance to take part in an event that would provide a wonderful legacy for each child personally and each school as a whole."
The event has the personal backing of Lord Sebastian Coe who wrote a personal message for the front of the programme.
