pipping 'My Name is Rio' to the top spot.
Bev Milner Simonds, from the team 'My Name is Rio', thanked the
Town Council, Segemoor Council, Mayor and Community Games for
people together to take part in some competitive sport, make new
friends and use the street as a giant playground was such fun!"

'summer of sport' was an obvious opportunity for us to come together
and celebrate. Thank you to all the teams and those who helped
put on such a great event."
