Kenilworth joins Commonwealth Games countdown

Leamington Editorial 22nd Jul, 2020   0

KENILWORTH is counting down to the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

The Warwick District Countdown Event is the second of four annual celebrations to mark the run up to the opening ceremony of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games July 28, 2022) in each of the district’s towns – Warwick, Kenilworth, Whitnash and Leamington. But due to the pandemic, the original plans for a day of outdoor activities and festivities in Kenilworth could not take place.

Despite the changes to the original event, Kenilworth’s mayor Richard Dickson is encouraging people to take part in his Commonwealth Games inspired themed quiz.

Coun Dickson said: “I am very pleased that everyone in our community has the opportunity to join the celebrations from home by taking part in our special Commonwealth Countdown quiz.




“We have some fantastic prizes, many of which have been donated by local businesses including tea and cake for two and range of sports and fitness memberships and vouchers which can be redeemed in the coming months.”

Kenilworth’s Countdown Event is being supported by local Commonwealth Games squash silver medallist and Warwick District Sports Ambassador Sarah-Jane Perry.


Sarah-Jane said: “With just two years to go I can now begin to visualise myself competing at Birmingham 2022, which is extremely exciting. It’s going to be such a fantastic event for the whole region and I’m proud to be championing Warwick district as it prepares to host sports fans from all over the world.”

Details of how to enter the Kenilworth mayor’s Commonwealth Countdown quiz can be found on the Warwick District Council website – www.warwickdc.gov.uk/CG2022. The closing date for entries is July 28.
