Kenilworth's Evening at the Olympics
Following the spectacular Olympic torch parade in Kenilworth, Kenilworth Ladies circle had their own Evening at the Olympics on Wednesday 25th July.
Former Circler, Paralympian, and Torch bearer, Melanie Barratt came and gave a talk on her Olympic experience. It was lovely to hear about Mel’s achievements, she is a truly inspirational person having represented Great Britain and winning Gold and Silver in Atlanta 1996, and Gold, Silver and Bronze in Sydney 2000.
The evening was a great success the ladies also held a sports quiz with the worthy champion being Rachel Turner, but the evening highlight was seeing the torch that Mel carried through Solihull and her medals.
