Go­ing wild in the com­mu­nity

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Cameras In Your Community -

YOUNG­STERS have been go­ing wild about sports and games as this sum­mer’s Olympics ap­proach.

More than 650 stu­dents and staff from across Peter­bor­ough Re­gional Col­lege took part in an Olympic Games day, in­clud­ing open­ing and medal cer­e­monies, where they com­peted at sports like ta­ble ten­nis, boc­cia which is a Par­a­lympic sport and a form of boules and vol­ley­ball as well as team events like Con­nect 4, Jenga, trea­sure hunt and ul­ti­mate frizbee.

The col­lege’s Olympics Project man­ager Paul Cooper said: “We de­cided to have our own Olympic games here at col­lege but we wanted to make them as all in­clu­sive as pos­si­ble and give all stu­dents an op­por­tu­nity to take part.

“We de­vised games that were easy for stu­dents to learn the rules, dif­fer­ent to the nor­mal com­pet­i­tive sports and cater for all abil­i­ties.”

And younger pri­mary school pupils were swept up in the grow­ing Olympic fever at an event at the Em­bank­ment Ath­let­ic­strack in Peter­bor­ough hav­ing a go on row­ing ma­chines, archery and box­ing.

City model Har­ri­ad­nie Beau was un­veiled as the new face of Savi hair sa­lon, in Oun­dle Road, Peter­bor­ough, at a party at the Halo night­club.

While char­i­ties were given a cash boost by the green to­ken scheme in Waitrose Peter­bor­ough where £1,000 is split be­tween three nom­i­nated char­i­ties, de­pend­ing on the num­ber of green to­kens cus­tomers vote for them.

Lynn Pleasence pre­sented cheques worth £424 to Peter­bor­ough Almshouse­trust, £213 to Ax­iom Hous­ing and £363 to Peter­bor­ough Streets.

Peter­bor­ough Con­ser­va­tive Club also held a suc­cess­ful fam­ily fun day to cel­e­brate its 60th an­niver­sary at their present venue in Broad­way.
