Rain didn’t stop play - or learning - when Stainland Sports Association held its Sports Mash-Up this summer.

Held at Stainland Memorial Park, children could try all four of the sports played - bowls, cricket, football and rugby. Additionally, Stainland WI members taught children and adults about how to use CPR and the sports association’s defibrillators.
