Sutton Coldfield MP Andrew Mitchell has thrown down the gauntlet to the town’s children for a tug-of- war the likes of which have never been seen!
In a statement, he said: “To the young people of the Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield: at 4pm on Sunday 8 July, I shall be leading a team of those who have been elected to represent the Royal Town in a tug of war and we challenge the young people of Sutton Coldfield to take us on!”
Dennis adds: “Andrew is a great supporter of the Games and has been since day one. He finds the tug-of war difficult to resist and this year he has personally invited all elected representatives of Sutton Coldfield, whatever their political allegiance, to form a team. It’s all great fun and I’m sure the kids will rise to the challenge to once again secure a victory!”
