Join Wyndham Park community fun after Queen’s Baton Relay

Grantham’s Queen’s Baton Relay event will enjoy an extra injection of fun thanks to post-relay community sports and family activities in Wyndham Park on 11 July.

Sports charity Inspire+ is working with LeisureSK and South Kesteven District Council to stage a Commonwealth themed all-comers event for schools, pre-school youngsters, businesses and the public.

At least 1,500 pupils from 12 schools will be lining the park relay route ready to enjoy post-relay mass participation activities including boxercise, yoga and low intensity sports challenges.

Now organisers want to encourage support from workplaces, parents of small children and the general public.

Chris Graves, Inspire+, said: “Any schools still not registered do need to get in touch with us, but everyone else can just come along and join in. Let’s make this a true Grantham celebration of the Queen’s Baton relay coming through town as we build up to the Commonwealth Games.

“Anyone can come and have fun. How about businesses making it a team building exercise to engage with colleagues? We will also have activities for pre-school children, so there’s literally something for everyone.”

Cllr Annie Mason, SKDC cabinet member for people and safer communities, said: “This is building into a truly fabulous and memorable day.

“It’s an honour to be hosting the Queen’s Baton Relay in Grantham in such a special year. Now, thanks to our amazing partners, we can build on that with our post-relay event and leave residents with some wonderful memories. I hope everyone will come and support it.”


The times for each section of the post-relay event are:

Schools. 11.30am – 12.30pm
Workplace / businesses. 12.30 – 1.15pm
Public and pre-school. 1.15 – 2pm
