Teams of fun seekers are encouraged to enter an event aimed at bringing the community together.

The third annual Billingham Community Challenge 2015 features wet and wild games at St Bede Sixth Form College.

It’s all about community cohesion bringing together residents, businesses and educators to talk to each other.

Organiser Pat Chambers

By taking part in the day on Saturday, June 13, competitors will support the Billingham Legacy Foundation, that provides grass root support to those in need in the community.

Organiser Pat Chambers said: “It’s all about community cohesion bringing together residents, businesses and educators to talk to each other.

“This event is lots of fun, will challenge you to work as a team and of course see you compete against other teams that include our residents, schools and businesses.

“Last year a lot of teams wore fancy dress – this is optional but did add to the laughter, so you may want to have a team theme.

Businesses and groups from the Billingham area that have entered teams so far include Queensway Dental, SK Chilled Foods, KP Snacks, Cleveland Comets, Cleveland Wildcats, St Michael’s, Northfield, Thirteen Group, Princes Trust, Clinical Commissioning Group, Wates, Stockton Riverside College and Bede 6th Form College.

Entrants are warned they will get wet but showers will be available on site in March House Avenue.

Alongside the main event will be a whole host of family activities including craft fair, face painting, tie dye T-shirts, and games for children.

Visitors can also get to grips with a climbing wall, hit the mobile skatepark, go down an airline escape chute or enjoy football and cycling.

The games in the main arena start at 1pm and finish around 4pm.

Parking is providednext to the college site and marshals will be on hand.

It costs £30 per person in teams of between eight and 10 people aged 16 and over.
