GRASMERE SPORTS COMMITTEE LTD

 

LOOKING FORWARD TO 2022 ... 

Work has begun on planning the 2022 Sports, and the focus will be on 'taking part', whether that is in the wrestling, fell races, hound trails or the dog show.

There will be lots for our younger visitors to do with fun children's races, lots of bikes to try - all in addition to the children's classes in the wrestling, fell races and dog show.

There may be a few changes to help keep everyone safe, but we are very much looking forward to seeing everyone again at the Sports Field on Sunday 28th August 2022.

Please let us know if you have any ideas of things that you would like to see included in the Sports  - the best ideas will be included if we can!

You can contact the Sports and Field Manager, Deborah Black at [email protected] or 07977 542853
