Community Games Goes Down Under
The spirit of Community Games has stretched across the globe and Heathcote a small rural town in Central Victoria Australia has hosted the first game outside of England.
After hearing about the success of Community Games in England, Heathcote decided to host their own Games. Sandra Slatter the main organiser commented, "The weekend was a great success filled with laughter and fun -' the young teaching the old and the old teaching the young.' The spirit of the games was amazing - everyone is looking forward to it continuing". The games took place across 25 sites as featured a wide variety of events from Bed push races through to skittles. To find out more about the event a short video has been put together by the event organisers.
