A VIRTUAL sports day event has been hailed a huge success.

Sport Powys’ ‘Stay At Home Sports Day’ was held in conjunction with the Powys Family Information Service on Thursday.

Throughout the day families across Powys joined in with various sporting events that organiers posted throughout the day.

New events were launched every half and hour families encouraged to have a go.

The event had 165 people confirmed as “going” with a further 252 interested while also engaging with schools who were promoting the day to their pupils to take part in.

Jonny Roberts of Sport Powys said: “The weather was perfect and we had great engagement from so many families across the county.

“It was something that anyone could have a go at.

“Hopefully it helped ease the transition back into school life for the kids.”
