The Para Sport Festival is being organised by Melton Inclusive Sport & Physical Activity (MISPA) Steering Group from 11am to 3pm.

It is free to get involved and attendees can find out about local clubs and groups who provide inclusive sport and physical activity opportunities, and also learn more about the Paralympics and disability sport.

There will be a wide range of activities to try on the day, including blind football, orienteering, dance, stretch and mobility classes and tennis.

Councillor Malise Graham, the council’s portfolio holder for people and communities, said: “This really fun event is a great opportunity for the community to come together after a challenging 18 months.”
