The Sutton Games


Community, the Sutton Games,

Inspiration and fun inflames.

Non – commercial with Buddy Bear,

The Games’ mascot for us to share;

Volunteers, corporate big names.


A true event with simple aims:

“Activites”, Buddy exclaims!

Sleeves rolled up, sports day, village fair:



“Try something new”, Buddy proclaims,

“Get active! Better than board games!”

Community, not solitaire,

In the gazebo thoroughfare

Sutton is photographed in frames.
