On Wednesday 9 October, The Mayor of Solihull, Councillor Stuart Davis, joined in with the many participants at this year’s Solihull Get Active Games at North Solihull Sports Centre.
The Solihull Gets Active Games is a free taster day filled with sports and activities for people with disabilities aged 16 and above. Among the list of nearly 20 activities available to attendees there was inclusive football, archery, Tai Chi and swimming.
As part of the day, there was also a wide range of local organisations that came to chat with participants and also provide information, support and guidance for anyone that might have needed it.
The Mayor of Solihull, Councillor Stuart Davis said:
“Today’s activities showcase how Solihull is a borough full of organisations that do incredible work to ensure inclusivity is championed. The variety and quality of the activities and the advice on offer by the attending organisations is outstanding and, as I look round now and see so many smiling faces enjoying either inclusive football or rowing, I know this type work is making a huge difference.”
Joe Harper, general manager at North Solihull Sports Centre, also added:
“We are pleased to have worked alongside Solihull Council in delivering a day of free activities across our fantastic facility. We are even prouder to offer inclusive activities so everyone has the opportunity to take part and enjoy getting active."
