“We saw loads of happy faces enjoying being part of an event for the first time in a while.
“I had a great time taking part in the sports as well. I look forward to coming along and seeing more of Coventry’s fantastic sporting clubs and organisations during the week as well as all of the health and well-being stalls.”
