Friends of Victoria Park Stretford

Summer Sports Spectacular – 24th July 2010

A cloudy day with a gentle breeze but warm enough to enjoy our Sports Spectacular. Games from badminton and croquet to table tennis and pickup sticks were scattered around for anyone to enjoy and six brave teams battled it out to be the Victoria Park Duck Decathlon Champions. They competed in ten crazy races, from the more traditional sack and skipping races to the more unusual, Chuck a Duck and and Hook a Duck competitions and there were winners. In bronze duck position were the ‘Chicken Licken’ team, closely beaten by the ‘All stars’ but in the Golden Duck position, our champions were the ‘Gorsehill Giants’.

The day was enhanced by the good humour of the teams and the kind and considerate way the older team members treated the little ones, cheering them on and helping them. Thank you to you all for taking part and making this another hugely enjoyable event. See you next year!

Thank you also to the Refreshment team who kept up our energy and spirits with lollies, hot dogs, buns and drinks. Teresa was ablely assisted by Cllr Tom Ross, Cllr Steve Adshead, Cllr Dolores O’Sullivan and Kate Green our local MP, who give of their time and energies so enthusiastically to our park.
