GOOD sports are being sought in Warwick district for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games billboard campaign.

Warwick District Council (WDC) is on the look-out for members of the sporting community for the ‘hometown heroes’ project.

The campaign aims to shine a light on people from the region who have dedicated their lives to grassroots sport.

The winning nominees will be chosen to feature on billboard adverts across the region in 2021, as the countdown to the Commonwealth Games begins.

And the council is hoping representatives from the district will be among the faces chosen.

WDC culture spokeswoman Moira-Ann Grainger said: “We know there are many people in our local community who deserve to be recognised for their contribution to sport. This could be an inspiring coach, dedicated volunteer, courageous player or die-hard supporter, or anyone who’s had a real impact on a local sports club, team or facility.”

The campaign follows the announcement the Games’ cycling road race will be held in Warwick.

St Nicholas Park will host the start and finish of the event, which will see around 160 cyclists from across the commonwealth take part in two road race events with spectators lining the route.

And Leamington is the official venue for the Lawn Bowls and Para Bowls competitions.

Visit to nominate a sporting hero. Entries close on Friday November 6.
