Churches in Alvechurch celebrate the arrival of the Commonwealth Games.

On July 30th Alvechurch held their very own Games, celebrating the arrival of the Commonwealth Games just down the road.

Alvechurch Games evening at the Baptist Church was never going to match the Commonwealth Games with its £millions budget just a few miles up the road in Birmingham. However the church organised a multi-event Team Challenge night to mark the  “once in a lifetime” coming of athletes from round-the-world to the area.

With tests such as Balloon Shot Putt and Paper-plate Discus there was much need for special skills and much fun to be found in the trying (and failing!) of new methods.

When all the events had been attempted and while scores were assembled, there were Caribbean and Canadian food choices to be savoured, followed by a Queen and Commonwealth Quiz.

A Team Prize-giving and Individual Medal Ceremony rounded-off the evening which had brought a happy time for many villagers and guests.
