VILLAGERS were under starter’s orders for the Liphook Village Sports Day.

The aim of the day, which was opened at Bohunt School by Invictus Games cycling gold medallist Andy Kelsey, was to promote the facilities and sports activities on offer.

A Bramshott and Liphook Parish Council statement said: “The sports day was well attended with an estimated 300 plus people attending over all age groups.

“We had very positive feedback from all the sports organisations, many of whom commented that they considered it was even better organised than the previous year. We were really pleased to have Andy Kelsey from Invictus Games coming to support this event. Taking inspiration from both Andy and Olivia Breen from last year’s event we would particularly like to see ways in which we can offer more sports not only to all ages but also to all abilities within our community in the future.”
