Event - Sutton Coldfield Community Games

8 and 9 July 2017

Over the weekend of 8th and 9th July 2017 Abbey staff and families supported the Sutton Community Games.

The easiest way to describe 'the games' is as a village fete combined with a schools sports day. Run by volunteers including our very own Mrs Kennedy, Ms Tallon, Mr McTernan, Mrs Marks and Mrs Lonergan and with all the activities provided free of charge by local sports clubs, groups and associations, the Sutton Games is a true community event with a simple aim: to give everyone, whether young or old, an opportunity to try their hand at the enormous variety of sports played and activities enjoyed in and around Sutton Coldfield.

The weekend is designed to be completely interactive – visitors can try everything from athletics to agility games, bowls to Boccia, dance to dodgeball, sailing to skating, tennis to trampolining... all completely free of charge and without any commitment.

Abbey families had the additional challenge of having a photograph taken with a member of staff and posting it with #teacherselfie on the school and Sutton Games twitter page.

Thank you to everyone who made the community event such a great success.
