Exmouth’s little Olympians

Youngsters from across Exmouth got into the spirit of the Olympics, taking part in a host of fun sporting events

Little Olympians from pre-schools across Exmouth took part in a host of sporting activities at Withycombe Rugby Ground.

Some 10 pre-schools from the Exmouth Learning Community went head-to-head in the fun event, which included bouncy hoppers and welly throwing.

The sport-filled morning ended with a closing ceremony led by Exmouth mayor, John Humphries, and Olympic torch bearer, Colin Rowland, of Hulham Road, where each youngster was presented with a certificate and gold medal. A spokesperson for the event said: “The morning was a huge success despite the grey clouds. This was a real community event.

“The children all left with a smile on their faces and the pre-school staff formed some lasting friendships - a real Olympic legacy.”

Pre-schools taking part in the Exmouth Little Olympians event were Bassetts Farm, Brixington, Dolphin, Lympstone, Rainbows, Sunshine and Withycombe.

Marpool, Little Otters and Treehouse pre-schools were forced to pull out of the event due to the wet weather.
