GRASMERE SPORTS 2021 - UPDATE

We have been busy behind the scenes planning our 2021 Sports, and very much hope that we will be able to welcome you all back to the Sports Field for our traditional event on Sunday 29th August 2021.  News of the latest situation will be posted here, as and when it is available.

We have also had a few changes with new Directors and a new Chairman Mr John Hibbert. After many years of service Hal Bagot has stepped down and is now Vice Chairman. Our new Chairman John said “Being Chairman of Grasmere Sports Committee Ltd is a great privilege and I have always held the longstanding traditions of both the community and the Sports in great respect. My family have been involved in the Sports for several generations, and all my children have taken part in Guides races since early childhood, though I may have missed my chance some time ago!

Improving what we offer to visitors and those taking part are very important to us. Please let me know through https://www.grasmeresports.com/contact-us/ if you or anyone you know has any ideas which would help in this regard”.

All that is left for us to do is to wish everyone a happy and safe festive season and a happy and healthy new year.
