Saturday 13th July saw dozens of local people join with the Southend Tamil Association as they hosted their 9th annual Sports Day. Held at Alleyn Court School between 10:00 and 17:00, the dry weather allowed all events to take place as planned. Medals and trophies were presented to many of the young competitors.
Sir David was delighted to be joined by a number of local Conservative Councillors who also showed their support for the outstanding contribution made to the local area by the Tamil community.
Following the event, Sir David said “It has been an absolute joy to spend time here at this Sports Day. I would like to congratulate all the participants and thank everyone who has worked so hard to make it such a success.”
