This week Highbury Fields witnessed another historic event, as St Mary's Primary School held their 2012 Sports Day. Competitions included egg and spoon race, javelin, sprint, obstacle course and tug of war. In the glorious sunshine the atmosphere was electric with children cheering on each other throughout all the events.
Our own youth minister, Tim Broadbent, competed in and won the staff race:
"While I was delighted to win my race, the real winners are all the children of St Mary's whose behaviour was brilliant all day and and everyone tried their hardest in every event".
Meanwhile the traditional parents' sprint lived up to its top billing and was a fiercely competitive race.
