The Paralympic Flame

The Lantern is due to arrive at around 3.30 - 4pm. Former Paralympic weightlifter Paul Cartwright, from Batley, will receive the Flame after it has been carried on a lap of honour round the athletics track.
Booking is essential so that we can plan for appropriate numbers of coaches, volunteers and activities.
All the activities and sports on offer are open to all children and young people regardless of their ability. We particularly welcome children with a disability or sensory impairment.
