After two pandemic-hit years, Barnet’s favourite sporting event Urban Gamez was back at the end of August 2022 for its tenth
Having now outgrown The Concourse, this year’s event was bigger than ever and held in Heybourne Park. There was, of course, the traditional 60 metre track to find out who Grahame Park’s fastest children are. This year it was joined by an inflatable climbing
wall, a rodeo bull, health and fitness tips from Better Gyms, a football target game, a bouncy castle and smoothie bike, as well as a visit from the London Fire Brigade who gave children the chance to test out their firefighting equipment.
And once everyone had raced and the winners had been decided, the Worshipful the Mayor of Barnet, Councillor Alison Moore
visited to give all the worthy winners their medals.
Blessed with great weather, Urban Gamez brought out the whole Grahame Park community together, and gave residents the
opportunity to have an enjoyable day. As well as all the fun and games, the day gave residents the chance to speak to Barnet’s community organisations who provided information on work and training, substance abuse, the regeneration of the area and community safety.
Group Director, Operations and Property, Elliott Sweetman said: “This is the best Urban Gamez we’ve had since it all began, which is a real testament to the team who put it together.”
The Barnet Group would not have been able to host Urban Gamez without the generous support of its sponsors: Ad Hoc, Morgan Sindall Property Services, Notting Hill Genesis, Procom, Purdy, Quinn London, WG Wigginton and WSP.
