Link4Life's Big Games is a legacy project of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Over 5,000 people took part in The Big Games borough-wide during the 2012 Olympic celebrations and it's been a great success story ever since. Link4Life has built on this project to promote local clubs and groups and to get more people more active.
Link4Life's Event Co-ordinator, Donna Livesey said:
"The Big Games aims to help people find out more about the wide range of resources on their doorstep and how they can get to use them on a regular basis. We're inviting everyone to come along ready to have fun and try as many activities as possible during the day."
The Big Games takes place on dates in June and July, the focus is on children and families and all activities are FREE - just turn up. There's something for all ages, and taster sessions will run throughout the days.
A variety of activities will be available including our Inflatable, Footgolf, Zumba session, Tennis, Football, Cricket, Health Checks, Really Wild Show, Soft Play Under 5’s area, Punch and Judy, Facepainting and Arts and Crafts. (Touchstones Rochdale will be hosting exclusively Arts & Crafts activities only).
